When Liz Abunaw saw the lack of grocery stores and other basic services on the West Side of Chicago, she used her MBA background to start a community-centered grocery service that not only pays tribute to the United States’ first farmers, but also ensures healthy produce is available on the West Side. 2020 brought not only the pandemic to affect Liz’s business, but also brought a national outcry for racial justice. And in the Spring/Summer of 2020 when Black Lives Matter protests were happening around the country in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, Liz saw an uptick of sales in tandem with national campaigns to support Black-owned businesses. Roundtable guests: Pinky Cole, creator of Slutty Vegan and Keshia Knight Pulliam- actor and co-founder of the Fearless Fund.
