This month (and throughout the year), we encourage our community to support black-owned businesses and black-led movements and leaders, based here in Philadelphia and abroad. At Mariposa, we carry an array of products from brands like Alaffia, Nubian Heritage, Yadain (based in Germantown), Dodah’s Kitchen, and more that employ, pay fair-wages to, and empower black people throughout the world.
As a food co-op, we know that there is still work to be done in uprooting all forms of oppression against black people in this country and around the world. We will continue to focus our efforts on dismantling those systems as your neighborhood grocer.
In celebration of Black History Month, we, the POC/Black and Brown Workers Caucus at Mariposa Food Co-op, have unanimously voted to select two Philly-based, black-led farms to receive 5% of the Co-op’s sales from Sunday, February 24. We want to financially support groups who are at the forefront of the food justice and food sovereignty movements in Philly.
