In inner-cities across the nation, there are corner stores on nearly every block, while the nearest health food stores remain miles away. This disparity has resulted in the sociological phenomenon commonly referred to as "food deserts". While the accessibility of local corner stores do offer a measure of convenience, the unfortunate reality is that the products most often sold there are nothing short of inconvenient to the health of community members. Diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are high prices to pay for living in the "wrong" neighborhood. 

Oasis Market: The Conscious Corner Store hopes to help to change this narrative, and we've got big dreams.

What if every corner store in the hood was a health food store? What if every “food desert” had an Oasis? Oasis Market is working to help normalize healthy eating and conscious living in historically excluded communities. We're starting small by simply visualizing the types of products that we want to see on the shelves of every corner store of every neighborhood. Oasis can only be found online for now, as we lack the funds to open brick-and-mortar locations.

But not everyone lacks the funds.

We're calling on the big players in government and in the natural health space to step up and invest in communities that are in greatest need of attention. We want them to join our daydream by doing whatever it takes to transform corner stores into the health food stores that every human body craves.
