For the third consecutive year, a percentage of proceeds from Love + Chew will be donated to the non-profit organization Oasis for Girls.
Oasis for Girls partners with young women of color, aged 14-18, from under-resourced communities in San Francisco to cultivate the skills, knowledge, and confidence to discover their dreams and build strong futures.
Love + Chew's partnership supports Oasis for Girls' key initiatives including:
• After-programming and internship opportunities.
• Wellness workshops covering stress, anxiety, depression, and managing relationships led by a counselor trained in working with teens. Given the teen mental health crisis, this initiative represents a crucial part of their overall program.
• A mentorship program where the girls can connect with professional women and hear about their career paths. This is an amazing opportunity to meet women from around the country in areas ranging from law and medicine to lighting design and construction. (Lauren, Love + Chew's founder, is a mentor as well)In 2022, Oasis for Girls is planning on expanding the wellness program, continuing the mentorship program, doubling down on wage justice for their staff (so that the WOC serving GOC are paid a living wage and able to thrive in SF), and striving to increase the reach of our award-winning curriculum.
