Issue 07: BIPOC GROCERY LIST
Because it is a movement, not a moment.
I have not been sending out new issues of Enjoy By as it felt inappropriate to share anything that isn’t related to the Black Lives Matter movement. In addition to lots of reading, consuming, reflecting, and journaling I decided to shift gears with Issue 07.
I have seen lots of resources for BIPOC-owned farms and restaurants but not as many for food brands. Organized by grocery aisle, I compiled a NON-EXHAUSTIVE list of food, beverage, and wellness BIPOC-owned brands.
A link to the doc is below, please share! Additionally, if you know of any brands that are not represented in the spreadsheet, please submit the company name/website into the Google form, also linked below.
The mission of Enjoy By is to be a free, educational food resource. Leanne Brown’s “Good and Cheap, Eat Well on $4/Day” was a major inspiration, as it gives recipes that allow you to eat within the $4/day food stamps budget. (Available en español here)
I am proud to share this list and look forward to learning of more brands that are sent from Enjoy By readers!
