Side Yard Farm & Kitchen will be serving up some farmy nachos and cocktails. Your ticket includes admission, food and beverage. In addition, the show is a fundraiser for The Okra Project
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 they can reach them. The Okra Project hires Black Trans chefs to prepare healthy and home-cooked meals for their Black TGNC siblings with no cost. 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 UberEats, Osborne Association, and other community spaces to deliver food.Okra believes that food is not only a nourishment, but a gateway to unlimited cultural and social possibilities. By providing Black trans folks with this basic need, Okra makes it possible for their community to pursue their emotional, spiritual, and artistic goals.
