The notion of “Food Justice” recognizes that access to healthy and affordable foods is a human right. In the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, the Tenderloin Healthy Corner Store Coalition (TLHCSC) believes that access to food is a health equity issue. The communities with the highest incidence of chronic disease and need have the least access to the healthy, fresh and affordable foods themselves. This project, therefore, was implemented to focus a lens on the food process from the farm to the plate, and acknowledges that the Tenderloin district has been marginalized and left out of this process.

The work of the TLHCSC is three-fold:
(1) To train, educate, and empower resident leaders of the Tenderloin to advocate for food justice in their community.
(2) To collect data and information about the availability of fresh and healthy food in the neighborhood, evaluate specific ways to improve, and to create standards to measure a healthy food retailer.
(3) To improve the overall community environment by investing in and changing some of the TL’s unhealthiest elements, corner liquor stores, into vital community resources.

“Advertisements have affected my life since childhood in many ways. Seeing these ads got me curious, ‘how can people buy all these cigarettes and liquor instead of fresh produce?’ So I decided to take part as one of the five food leaders to serve the best for my community for best healthy life.” -Michelle Huynh Tran, Tenderloin resident
