From the Urban Oasis Project Website:
Urban Oasis Project is committed to our mission of healthy local food Accessible to ALL! We are working hard to connect to folks in most need right now.
We have partnered with @FoodNotBombsMiami @femPowermia & @FincaMorada to help us distribute healthy food to those in most need. As a result of our physical farmers markets having to close, this limits food access to many people. And as our economy slows down dramatically, more people have less money to purchase healthy food or even food at all. If you are fortunate enough to feel financially stable right now, please consider the very different situation for many folks in our community from the homeless to even the now jobless servers, performers, cooks, from your favorite restaurant or bar. If you have resources that you can spare, please lend a hand to your community. A $20 donation will provide a box of groceries to one person in need. A $100 donation will feed a whole family. A donation of any amount small or large is welcome & appreciated! We've made the item in our web store a 20$ donation however you can add more of them to your cart to donate more! Thanks in advance for your generosity.
