Spotlight on Uhuru Foods and Pies: An independent African economy for the prosperity and self-determination of African people worldwide

Be a part of building the economic foundation of the African Nation!

Uhuru Foods & Pies has been part of the history of economic self-reliance and self-determination of the African People’s Socialist Party for over 35 years.

Now, a dynamic institution of Black Star Industries (BSI), Uhuru Foods & Pies is about putting the means to grow, produce and distribute fresh food into the hands of African people. The vision of Uhuru Foods & Pies includes the goal to control our own land, farms, trucking, baking, cooking and distribution of food.

Uhuru Pies Annual Campaign

Be part of the Uhuru Pies annual tradition in the Oakland/ San Francisco Bay Area and Florida! Volunteers bake and sell thousands of pies each fall holiday season, made from scratch with natural ingredients, to support the programs of the Uhuru Movement.

Take a Pie-cation! You’ve heard of a “volunteer vacation.” This is an opportunity to build and expand Uhuru Pies by joining us in one of our locations to help bake and sell Uhuru Pies.

Join the pie production in the Uhuru Jiko Community Commercial Kitchen in St. Petersgburg or at our shared kitchen in Oakland!

Go out to companies and organizations where we have Uhuru Pies tastings to give out samples and take orders.

Staff an Uhuru Pies pop-up table at grocery stores or markets, or make phone calls to pie buyers.

Come for several days or a week, anytime Nov. 7-26 or Dec. 12-24. Everyone is welcome! Call or email us to arrange to work with Uhuru Pies––the days just before the holidays are busiest.

There’s no better way to build the African Revolution than to contribute to our economic development.

Join the virtual team: Some work can be done from anywhere! Contact us to participate in making phone calls to buyers and to companies for ingredients donations.

Buy and Sell Uhuru Pies! Sign up as an Uhuru Pie seller at Set a goal. Sell Uhuru Pies to friends, family, co-workers. Don’t live in Oakland, California or Florida? Purchase Uhuru Pies for families in need. Let your family and friends know they can do the same.

Black Star Industries / Uhuru Foods & Pies is part of creating the African Independence Workforce Program: Our Labor! Our Future!

Part of our vision of economic self-sufficiency and self-reliance for African people is building the African Independence Workforce Program (AIWP) designed to reverse the negative impact of prison on our entire community.

We will create opportunities for formerly incarcerated African men and women to receive training, gain employment and become stakeholders in a prosperous economy for our entire community.

Uhuru Jiko Community Commercial Kitchen – Oakland

The first step to launching this program is opening an Uhuru Jiko Community Commercial Kitchen in Oakland.

We opened our first Uhuru Jiko in the St. Petersburg, Florida Uhuru House in 2013. The kitchen is the home of Uhuru Foods & Pies and provides a resource to our community for those starting or operating a food business.
