Welcome to Cafe Sankofa Cooperative
Supporting Syracuse's Southside community in health, wellness, and access to culture.
At Cafe Sankofa, our mission is to provide our neighbors with new avenues to health and wellness in all its forms - physical, mental, and spiritual.
We believe communities know best how to uplift themselves, so we've organized as a volunteer-run wellness cooperative and provide programming based on the Southside community's needs and wants.
