Healthy Eating Active Communities Initiative student Magali Bravo initiated the conversion of the first South L.A. store, owned by her godfather, to stock healthier food choices. This “market makeover” serves as a model for other local stores and helped lay the foundation for Public Matters and South L.A. HEAC’s work on marketmakeovers.org.

On her way to school everyday, HEAC student Magali Bravo sees few healthy choices, store after store. This video shows that with a little elbow grease and a lot of determination, a neighborhood can grow their healthy food options – one corner store at a time.
