Good food should not be a luxury. Nikki Henderson is the executive director of People’s Grocery based in Oakland. From PaperMag:
People’s Grocery runs a leadership development program, a community garden, a greenhouse and offers cooking classes. Next year, the brick-and-mortar People’s Community Market will open, selling a variety of local, organic, affordable food and featuring a front porch with a dining patio. “Our following began because food is one of the best ways to bring people together,” says Henderson.
