LaKeasha Brown

Congratulations to LaKeasha Brown, Founder of 1987 Juices LLC for being the WomensNet $5,000 February Business Specific Grant recipient in the category of “Health and Fitness.”

1987 Juices is a Black woman owned (and minority women operated) small wellness company serving its community.

As LaKeasha told us, “1987 Juices started out of necessity to heal my acne and my extremely bad digestive tract. Imagine not being able to have a bowel movement for up to two weeks due to stress and the inability for your body to process certain foods. Bread, pasta, and dairy were never my friends and my body suffered greatly for it. I completed a 30 day raw food diet, while only drinking fresh juice and alkaline water and it completely healed my chronic acne as well as inspired my family, friends and members of the community. After seeing what the diet did for me, I had to create the same feeling for them.”

The WomensNet Business Specific Grant will help fund marketing efforts for 1987 Juices and drive more awareness and demand. We hope she continues to educate her community on plant-based eating.

Reminder that the category of the $5,000 Business Specific Grant in March is “Restaurant, Catering and Food”. If you applied for an Amber Grant in 2021 and your business is related to restaurants, catering, or food then you’re eligible to win the $5,000. If you’re going to apply in March, you’re eligible to win both the $10,000 Amber Grant as well as the $5,000 Business Specific Grant.
