People’s Grocery is a non-profit that was founded in 2002 and has operated numerous food projects (including the Mobile Market and the Grub Box), urban gardens and nutrition education programs in West Oakland. Peoples Community Market (PCM) is a for-profit business that is working to develop and operate a neighborhood food store in West Oakland. Both organizations were founded by Brahm Ahmadi. PCM emerged out of the work and experience of People’s Grocery, but it is a separate organization with its own board of directors and staff. The two organizations may partner to conduct community outreach, job training and nutrition education.
