Endea Owens and the Community Cookout

The Community Cookout is founded by Endea Owens. Birthed as the result of the pandemic, The Community Cookout is an initiative that creates inclusive spaces that are accessible to anyone no matter their race, gender, or background. The Community Cookout strives to make New York a better place through music, activism, and meals.
