Behind-the-Scenes of Community Foods


In June, a new independent grocery store opened in West Oakland. Named Community Foods, the store was built with the support of many small local investors after years of planning that overcame multiple obstacles. Get a behind-the-scenes tour with its founder to hear what it took to get the store built and the challenges of running a new full-service grocery business in a neighborhood that hasn’t had one in years.
