About

Nourishing others is a deeply rooted value of mine. The goal of this fund is simply to bring moments of joy to Black women while supporting & highlighting Black-owned businesses in the community. Because nourishment can take so many forms, we deliver not only hot meals but also care packages with self-care items, grocery boxes with produce from local farms, gift cards to Black women-owned businesses, and more. These deliveries are not charity; they are gifted in solidarity to thank the Black women in our community whose contributions to the Bay Area are invaluable.

"The Nourishment Fund pays Black chefs to cook for Black women and nonbinary people who, simply, could appreciate a hot meal delivery. The free meals are delivered weekly by a team of volunteers, and Dana Plucinski, a food business publicist and the Fund’s organizer, hopes to enhance the packages with fresh baked goods, candles and other self-care items. She got the idea from the work of Rachel Cargle, whose Loveland Foundation raises money to set Black women and girls up with therapy sessions.

 

Food is also her love language, expressed often by dropping off meals to loved ones. 'It’s nice to be thought of,' she said. 'And it takes one more thing off the to-do list for the day.'..."
