Ujamaa Café™, is a practice of community care and economics through supporting neighborhood revitalization at the intersection of health and food equity. Ujamaa, meaning “brotherhood” or “extended family” in Swahili and celebrated annually during Kwanzaa as the fourth principle committing practitioners to “cooperative economics" is the demonstration of community care.
