Our Indiegogo Has Ended But we're still raising Funds

Fundraising in our current sociopolitical climate and around the holidays was a challenge but we are grateful. However, given the importance of the work we are doing and our current pending projects we aren't giving up. That just isn't our way!
So we are continuing our fundraising efforts and we are going to raise the other 20K! We are launching another crowdfunding campaign and in the meantime we encourage you to continue contributing directly to our PayPal account.

The BLK Projek is a women of color led organization that harnesses the power of the local, good food movement to create and catalyze economic development for low income women and youth. Through our innovative and community led programming we seek to make more healthy, whole communities that will lead, shape and benefit from a more accessible food system.
In our short time, we are extremely proud of the inroads we have been able to make with the generous support of foundations like Jesse Noyes, Claneil and Simon Bolivar and mostly from individual donors like you!
In order for us to continue to do this work, grow, expand and stay accountable, help from folks like you is absolutely necessary. So whether it is a single dollar or one hundred dollars with your support we can continue to create programming that empowers residents, creates better choices for a healthier environment and catalyzes economic development.
