Our mission is to provide an inexpensive healthy food source for impoverished, urban communities. We strive to create an economic, social, and cultural independence because "you are what you eat". We will be owned and managed by the members of the coop that is structured as a democratic community. We will work with local, national and international farmers to obtain healthy and quality foods.
The name Little Africa was inspired by Black Wall Street of Tulsa, Oklahoma. A place that is for us by us to build and practice community cooperation, independence and long-term survival. Little Africa is about bringing back overall wellness love synergy we once had as a people and create our new and improved Black Wall Street by creating powerful networks and collaborations.
Over the past 4 years, Little Africa has been working in Cleveland and surrounding communities raising awareness around our solution to the food redlining and food apartheid issues where grocery stores have been closing leaving the community with more and more health inequities. Our majority African American communities are impoverished, underserved, lacking financial opportunities and now are the most vulnerable in this COVID19 crisis and are increasingly at risk for all forms of disparities.
