since its early roots in west oakland,Mandela Partners has been leading innovative and community-centered initiatives to address two competing food access challenges: ensuring fair pricing for small farmers who grow sustainably while simultaneously keeping the cost of produce affordable enough for low-income residents.



With the proliferation of diet-related disease, communities across the Bay Area are seeking means to transform the health landscape and create food secure neighborhoods. Our food access programs were created to secure residents’ right to access fresh, affordable, and healthy food.


Partnering with neighborhood stores to increase healthy food access
