The Fresh Life Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that does exciting work uplifting the health, well-being and economic advancement of our West Oakland community. We work in partnership with the Community Foods Market which is a community-based, mission-driven food market, cafe & social space called the Front Porch located in the San Pablo Corridor.
We sponsor a variety of charitable events that are essential in advancing the goals of the Community Foods Market. The collaboration and synergy between the two organizations form a comprehensive approach to creating greater empowerment and inclusive change at the community level supporting healthy living.
"the first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all." ~Norman Borlaug
The Fresh Life Foundation invests in local residents and empowers them to improve their health by providing services and education programs that address unmet community needs.
Our gathering space, located at The Community Foods Market is used as a hub that supports and inspires members to bring forth new and inventive ways to advocate for a healthy and inclusive West Oakland.
By 2022, the Fresh Life Foundation will make measurable improvements to the physical, mental, and economic health of 30% of the residents in our West Oakland community through strategic engagement, education, and empowerment activities.
