Hello Future Volunteers!

Do you like to be outside, work with food and serve customers? And/or do you want to learn how or gain more experience working in a real food booth?

Then volunteer at our food booth on Saturdays where we are selling our delicious sweet and savory pies at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market in Oakland! Our shifts are 7am-11am or 11am-3pm. Please let us know what shift works for you and we will get you scheduled.

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.

Just pick a Saturday or more and a shift or more (hours are negotiable if you can’t work the full time)!

And/or if you would like to take on an internship, you will gain experience in these areas:

  • Leadership skills
  • Managerial skills
  • Training skills
  • Troubleshooting skills
  • Cooking/baking skills

We have many other ways to get involved with Uhuru Foods and Pies with baking, operations, delivery, etc.
Remotely through social media, recruitment, sales, etc!
