S2E3- “There’s Rice at Home…Away from Home”:Discussing OjaExpress with Boye Sobitan

Food is a vital component of how we construct our cultural identity, especially in the Black community. Access to food that reminds us of home is essential for our psyche and brings us comfort. On this episode, Dr. Ibe-Lamberts has a conversation with Mr. Boye Sobitan, co-founder of Oja Express, an on-demand ethnic grocery delivery platform that delivers ethnic ingredients that allow you to sustain your traditional meals that remind you of your home country, even if you’re away from home in a new country. We discuss the company’s beginning, its core values, why its important for Black immigrants, and more!
