Welcome to our online boutique!
We are selling quality, ethical, creative products to raise money for our activities and initiatives, which help young migrants and refugees (young Soul Food members). This is vital to the sustainability of our nonprofit, so we really appreciate your support and generosity!
100% of our merch profits go towards achieving our mission to expose our young members to art and culture, in an effort to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation, facilitate positive integration experiences and encourage novel levels of autonomy in their new home country. We hope that in doing so, they will learn, grow and anchor themselves to something they find inspiring, that will then allow them to bloom into their full potential.
In producing this merch, ethics and quality were central to everything. We chose eco-friendly, high-quality, organic cotton, recyclable and minimal packaging, and stickers made partially from recycled materials. In an effort to limit waste, we've decided to only produce t-shirts that you buy, so you will have a limited amount of time to purchase these. Other items will remain available while supplies last. As a small nonprofit, having the money up front also helps us fund the production of the merch collection. That's why we've decided to go with the pre-order process. It will take a bit longer for you to receive your order, but it will be worth it. The fact that the t-shirts are made from high quality materials also limits waste as you will be able to hold on to them for quite some time.
Art is at the core of everything we do at Soul Food. We've collaborated with artists before and are excited to be able to do so again, in this capacity. Our online boutique features original work from artists who believe in the power of art and creativity, just like we do. They've generously agreed to share the proceeds from each sale with us. Therefore, when you purchase their artwork, you are supporting these artists directly, as well as Soul Food's mission.
The first of these collabs is with the artist LarotK who wishes to donate all of the proceeds from the sale of his work to Soul Food.We are excited to feature three of his limited edition, original pieces, each of which features an iconic cultural figure.
