On Saturday December 2nd, 2017, the collaboration with the Live Well Community Market Program began for the complete market makeover at Rema Halal Foods in the City of El Cajon. The collaboration with Alaa Alsadoon, owner of Rema Halal Foods, hosted 75 volunteers to complete tasks such as: exterior painting, stenciling, constructing benches, installing bike racks, creating a garden space, and more. This project engaged community members, shoppers, local community-based organizations, and small businesses. The overall goal of this project was to improve the market’s interior and exterior to attract more shoppers, improve and promote access to affordable healthy foods, and build on existing economic development activities in the City of El Cajon.
