Practice intersectional feminism this Women’s History Month by supporting brands that are owned by women of color. Don’t know where to start? Check out this list of 10 Black women-owned vegan businesses you need to know.

Maya’s Cookies

Vegan cookies that ship nationwide? Say less. Well, we’re actually going to say more because we love this Black woman-owned brand so much. Maya’s Cookies baked goods showcase the perfect balance of a soft inside, crispy outside, and sweet taste. If we had to eat one flavor for the rest of our lives, it would definitely be Chocolate Chip S’mores!

You can currently order Atlas Monroe’s droolworthy vegan fried chicken and more for nationwide delivery. Or try it at one of their restaurant partners scattered around the country!
