Baba’s Vegan Cafe Caters Black Women For Wellness
Brittany Green, aquarius, ucla alumni, actress, teacher, and programming coordinator for Sisters in Motion,(Urban Chefs Academy) of Black Women for Wellness, was out attending the monthly Banana’s event, hosted at Kaos (3rd Tuesday of the month), when her boyfriend delicately convinced her to suffice her appetite with a delectable spinach/kale patty. By surprise, she was enamoured with a sense of fulfillment. Flavors captivated her and created a sense of awe that she ate something healthy, vegan, in South LA and late at night. She later reached out to Baba’s Vegan Cafe, requesting an order for her organization Black Women for Wellness, located in Leimert Park, CA.
Black Women for Wellness’ mission is committed to the health and well-being of Black women and girls through health education, empowerment and advocacy. They do this by offering, holistic and western healing services and resources, that affirm the best outcomes for black women and children. In addition they serve as a resource center and advocacy group influencing public policies that directly affect black women and girls.
They have such events like Sisters @ Eight, a community forum which brings hot topics and major health and wellness issues to the forefront of public conversation held on the 2nd Friday of each month and Kitchen divas where they facilitate live workshops focusing on a plant based diet.

So we created a special menu, offering a full vegan meal( chilli, brown basmati rice, organic gourmet salad, and veggie patties). Once arriving at their Leimert Park office, we were blessed to encounter familiar faces, we have once known from moments long ago. Brittany and I went to undergrad together, and worked at the Community Programs office doing retention, holistic, peer counseling and advocacy work for black students. Chef Wo’se used to live across the street from one of their other programmers in the office. If this wasn’t the universe speaking then I don’t know what was. When you align with the highest, the wellness, the divine in you, you in turn are aligned with that outside of you. With these recycled connections it is in our destiny to only prosper. Our Nubian wellness community is larger than we can imagine, we just have to align and open our eyes.
Serving healing food to an organization like Black Women for Wellness, who in turns serves our community through health awareness, knowledge, life skills, advocacy and resources, is the work we feel motivated by, the work that keeps us going, and affirms our role in the larger mission of Maat. We give thanks to Brittany Green and Black Women for Wellness for inviting us to be a part of their mission and we look forward to catering for you again. Love and Light.
Spreading wellness to the community.
