Uhuru Foods & Pies has an internship opportunity available for a volunteer coordinator to work our food booth at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market every Saturday.

Do you like to prep food, cook, serve customers, train people and be outside? And/or do you want to learn how or gain more experience working in a real food booth? Then become a part of our team as an intern at our food booth every Saturday where we cook and serve African comfort at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market in Oakland! Help manage our volunteers and cook and serve our delicious Jerk chicken, sweet potato and berry pies, and our homebrewed Sorrel (Jamaica juice) and ginger beer.

Uhuru Foods & Pies is one of the economic institutions of Black Star Industries (BSI) and it is about putting the means to grow, produce and distribute fresh food into the hands of African people.

The vision of Uhuru Foods & Pies includes the goal for Africans to control their own land, farms, trucking, baking, cooking and distribution of food, none of which African people are currently able to carry out on a large scale inside the U.S., Africa or anywhere in the world today. This is what prosperity and and self-determination for present and future generations of African people worldwide will look like.

This internship is every Saturday from 7AM - 3PM at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market in Oakland (hours are negotiable if you can’t work the full time)

You will gain experience in these areas:

  • Leadership skills
  • Managerial skills
  • Training skills
  • Troubleshooting skills
