Soul Food Co-op -- An Oasis in West Oakland

New America Media, VideoVideo: JR Valrey and Lawrence Fowler, Posted: Nov 28, 2009

Editor's Note: West Oakland's Soul Food Co-op is a a place where people can come learn about how food affects their body, get a massage, buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and learn vegetarian recipes. Co-owned by Atlanta transplants Yasser Woodard and Vahid, the co-op (grocery store) is a healthy oasis in a community with high unemployment, sub-standard schools, and liquor stores on every other block.
