This semester I was able to work with Community Foods Market, an independent and locally-owned grocery store in West Oakland, CA that aims to serve and support the surrounding community. As a marketing and content intern, I was able to highlight the narratives of those who shop at the market and share nutritious meal ideas on their social media platforms. This market only opened in 2019 and was a result of community efforts and engagement in West Oakland. This store is a real-life example of combating the lack of access to food and the inequalities that marginalized communities face.
