"The Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them."
"Based on individual donations, The Okra Project pays Black Trans chefs to go into the homes of Black Trans people to cook them a healthy and home-cooked meal at absolutely no cost to our Black TGNC siblings. For those Black Trans folks currently experiencing homeless or whose homes cannot support our chef’s cooking, The Okra Project has partnered with institutions like Osborne Association and other community spaces to deliver foods."
"In order to address financial and food disparities faced by Black Trans people worldwide, The Okra Project has developed the International Grocery Fund. This is a monthly fundraising effort that allows us to send small $40 grants to Black Trans people anywhere in the world, so they can buy food if they are experiencing emergency food shortages."
