MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., June 9, 2022 — As part of its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council activities, Kinecta Federal Credit Union, a leading financial services provider in the South Bay, celebrates Black-owned businesses by partnering with the Spicy Green Book organization for its second Manhattan Beach Food Market. The event will be held in the parking lot of one of Kinecta’s Manhattan Beach branches, located at 1440 Rosecrans Ave., on Saturday, June 11, 2022 from 12:00 to 7:00 pm.

“At Kinecta, we are committed to partnerships and activities that celebrate our diverse communities and population,” said Kim Graham, Vice President, Human Resources and Talent Development at Kinecta. “It’s an honor to partner with Spicy Green Book for the second consecutive year to help support Black-owned businesses. We invite our community to be part of this fun filled event as we help Black-owned food and beverage businesses succeed.”

Spicy Green Book founder Danilo Batson established the Spicy Green Book organization in 2020 to foster an “intentional economy” where consumers make purposeful decisions on where and how they spend their money. With the concept of Eating with Intention, it enables people to enjoy fantastic food while using their buying power to create a more equitable society.

Launched in 2020, Kinecta’s DEI Council supports employee resource groups, which are based on similar interests, identities and life experiences, such as race, gender, and sexuality. These groups raise awareness and give a voice to the underrepresented, allowing employees to network and socialize, as well as work on their professional development.
