SouthEats mission is to radically shift the way we think about food and ownership East of the River in Washington, DC by improving access to healthy, affordable prepared meals and introducing shared ownership into the local food ecosystem.
BRIDGING THE RACIAL HEALTH GAP AND THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP
In 2016 - through serendipity - Joelle Robinson, Jennifer Bryant and Xavier Brown learned about a new public health fellowship program. The three East of the River neighbors decided to apply for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Leaders program together as a team. After a competitive selection process, they were one of 40 teams from across the United States selected for the inaugural cohort. In 2018, they decided to pilot a food cooperative in Southeast, DC and welcomed Winford Jones to the team as the fourth worker-owner.
Stay in the loop with all
We are currently running a 6-week pilot with the goal of growing at the pace of trust with the community. Our pilot is testing out the feasibility of our business model. We are providing meals for 10 families that live in wards 7&8, with the goal of getting direct feed back from the communities we want to serve and grow with. In addition to the community relationship building we are testing out the framework for local food sourcing farmers and food hubs.
