SoS Juice

Power the People

This site is the home for all things SoS Juice and 'Food Fight'.

SOS Juice is a revenue-generating nonprofit that sells organic juice, smoothies, tonics, and elixers at farmers markets, pop-up juice bar locations, and via deliveries and pick-up locations. We also do community food justice, health equity, and spiritual liberation events every last Thursday at United Roots Oakland.

'Food Fight' is a hip-hop music video produced by Ben Zolno from New Message Media, Earth Amplified, and Stic.Man from Dead Prez.

It's educational, funny, and gangsta. It's a call to action.

SOS Juice, in which the SOS stands for 'System out of our System',  began in Jan 2012 as a monthly food justice, health equity, and spiritual liberation event, inspired by:

Indigenous wisdom and sacred ceremony                 The Black Panther's Free Breakfast Program

       The Green Jobs Movement                        The Global Environment, Climate, & Food Justice Movements

                   Veganism                                                                                      Occupy

These events have been powerful and have featured acclaimed artist, national speakers, and urban healers. However, I saw that in order for a deeper healing and transformation to happen, SOS Juice had to become an organization that could provide jobs, access to healthier lifestyles, and a cultural shift around food, health, and sustainability. 

These realizations prompted us to go to the market. SOS juice is for everyone with a stomach. Customers not only improve their own health, getting a good dose of their daily requirements of fruit and veggies in a cup, but also improve the health of communities impacted by poverty and the lack of access to healthy food and education. 

We create health equity in the midst of a growing demand for health foods, like fresh juice and superfood smoothies. When a person buys a juice from us, it directly supports juice cleanses, nutrition education, and urban farming in low-income communities.

 

Overall, SOS Juice:   

                          Promotes health and nutritional education

                         Supports sustainable agriculture and organic farmers

                         Enacts social composting: green career paths for youth and formerly incarcerated
