Kula Kitchen is making community cool.
It seems like every project is a passion project for Vancouverite Asha Wheeldon. Her love (and longing) for East African eats inspired her to launch Afrocentric food producer Kula Foods in 2018. Wheeldon's devotion to sustainability ensured a plant-based menu and, last year, her commitment to community prompted a food-first pandemic pivot. She and her team introduced Family Share meals in March 2020, and continue to deliver affordable, family-style vegan dishes to homes across the city. And in June, she started a list of Black-owned businesses in Vancouver that snowballed into a directory of over 200 companiesit was shared thousands of times, and grew so big that Yelp picked it up. Going viral may be exciting, but for Wheeldon, It's all about change. BIPOC businesses were seen for the very first time, she says. It's now something that is at the forefront in a lot of spaces. The impact is there, and that's the whole point. Kula Foods filled hearts (and tummies) when we needed it most.
