Mandela MarketPlace is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with local residents, family farmers, and community-based businesses to improve health, create wealth, and build assets through cooperative food enterprises in low income communities.

One of our Board members, community resident Brenda Munoz, will be running the Oakland Half Marathon this coming March 24th. Besides training hard, she's also helping her favorite non-profit, Mandela MarketPlace, raise much needed funds to help great projects like Mandela FoodsThe Healthy Neighborhood Store Alliance, and Earth's Produce Distribution continue to increase access to healthy food and community ownership in low-income communities of color throughout Oakland.

To demonstrate her commitment to empower communities in Oakland, Brenda has enlisted her husband, Prasi Gupta, and niece, Cindy Munoz, to run the Half Marathon with her. As a family, they will raise funds for Mandela MarketPlace, Will you help Brenda, Prasi, and Cindy meet their goal of $1,200? They promise to finish the Half Marathon! 

Help them help others in Oakland have access to healthy food and economic opportunity!
