BOBABAM, the at-home boba kit that brings the boba shop experience home, announces that it is a founding level donor with Project Potluck, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for People of Color (POC) to build successful companies and careers in consumer packaged goods (CPG). Project Potluck envisions a future world where the people who purchase, eat and drink are represented on the shelf and by the leadership of the companies they support. BOBABAM’s donation will help Project Potluck provide opportunities to the next generation of BIPOC entrepreneurs and young professionals in their future endeavors.

BOBABAM takes enormous pride that its three founders, over half of its leadership team and almost 75 percent of the company’s employees self-identify as POC. As a donor of Project Potluck, BOBABAM will help fund and facilitate the connection of members to mentors and promote the growth of diversity, equity, and inclusion-minded companies.

“We welcome BOBABAM as a founding level donor for Project Potluck, celebrating their commitment to our cause,” expresses Kathleen Casanova, founding executive director of Project Potluck. “Our organization empowers diverse professionals from all walks of life, and this partnership will further our mission of advancing diversity and inclusion in the industry.”

“Project Potluck aligns seamlessly with BOBABAM’s values,” says Ron Escopete, chief operating officer of BOBABAM. “We’re immensely proud and excited to work with this exceptional team, driving industry change and broadening our community’s influence.”
