HEAL Zone now online

The HEAL Zone is thrilled that the Southeast Food Access Coalition (SEFA), a Bayview Hunters Point-based project of the Shape Up San Francisco initiative, launched a new website, SoutheastFoodAccess [dot] org.

The new site highlights the work of SEFA and the Food Guardians, and features a section on where to find healthy food in the Bayview at local stores and food pantries; community gardens and gardening resources; and community-based organizations that offer nutrition education. SoutheastFoodAccess provides ratings of 20 corner stores and small markets and four larger food markets located in the Bayview. It also serves information about the types of healthy food available at each store.

SEFA is a collaborative of residents, community based organizations, city agencies and others working on food access and food systems. SEFA's goal is to leverage similar efforts and encourage partnerships and collaboration in order to achieve a vibrant and robust food system for all in Bayview Hunters Point.

The SEFA Food Guardians are a group of Bayview Hunters Point residents who educate, advocate and mobilize to address community food security and justice, promote nutrition education and awareness, and support urban agriculture in their community.
