Welcome to our community!!!
Our mission: To contribute to the health, well-being, empowerment and self -determination of under-served populations in the great Long Beach community, by providing affordable, nutritious, organic foods and eventually other goods and services, accessible to all, through a locally-oriented, collectively-managed, not-for-profit workers’ cooperative. Our intention is for this to be a platform for building mutually-beneficial community connections and to decrease dependency on the current corporate-owned structure. We are a produce delivery service, similar to an ice cream truck, with a specific and dependable route so that our clients know when to expect us and where. We are choosing to use the California Cooperative business model.
What we aim to solve:
Our largest hurdle is finding ways to increase our mobility in the community and decrease our hygiene expenses, but we have several avenues that are opening for both right now. We are getting more contributions from various organizations and other non profits and we are well on our way to eliminating the hygiene cost making it more feasible for us to maintain a vehicle which will significantly simplify storage & distribution. We would love to have a building at some point in the not too distant future, where we could hopefully house people in a dignified way, help them learn skills including urban gardening, healthy cooking, resume building, etc., and help them get on their feet again with pride in their efforts.
