Abdu treats his customers like family and dreams of selling healthier food at his store. Thank you to our generous supporters of Abdu and Three Amigos Market, who helped raise $10K to renovate his deli so he can sell healthy sandwiches and salads!
HOPE Collaborative’s Healthy Corner Store Project supports the expansion and improvement of existing small grocers in an effort to increase availability of nutritious, affordable food and improve the built environment, neighborhood safety, and community economic development in Oakland. We connect stores with financing, technical assistance, and community support so they can increase their provision of fresh or prepared healthy food options. We believe investments in quality food markets in underserved areas will directly benefit low-income communities through job creation, access to nutritious and affordable foods, and by establishing community anchors.
HOPE has been working on store makeovers which will target merchandising and product mix, and workforce training. The ultimate goal is to use the pilot to incubate a more comprehensive program and create a localized eco-system where community groups and residents can work with store owners on an on-going basis.
