Oakland, CA — "Everyone's Favorite Cousin, "CUZ Kev," Kevin Brown known for years of broadcast excellence has returned to the Bay Area for community service. Community service is something Brown has been well known for cultivating in his many years of broadcasting.
Juneteenth is a reminder of the need for social justice and Brown flew back to the Bay Area to assist. There is nothing more just than to make sure your neighbors have food to eat to help with their survival. The worldwide pandemic has had a negative financial impact on the West Oakland neighborhood that has traditionally struggled economically. That struggle intensified during the pandemic. Community Foods Market that has long helped the community with nutrition needs, with the help of friends and sponsors will be the location for a Juneteenth Food Drive Thru to help its neighbors in need.
Cover this event and see people assisted and enjoy the performances.
WHAT: "Community Saving Community" Juneteenth Food Drive Thru -Open to ALL
WHERE: Community Foods Market, 3105 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland, CA
WHEN: June 19, 2021 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. Juneteenth/Father's Day Weekend
WHY: West Oakland has been a community that has struggled with food scarcity for decades. Community Foods Market has been one of the lone grocers in the neighborhood to provide fresh food to residents. (originally known as People's Community Market) is a case study of the barriers that under-served communities face in opening food stores and the creative solutions, partnerships and tenacity that it takes to prevail. The Food Drive Thru will assist those in need and drive traffic to the store reminding Oakland residents of its role in helping those in need of fresh food and nutrition education.
