Do you want healthier food options in our neighborhood?

GAVA (Go Austin/Vamos Austin!) is a local organization working to improve health in South Austin.

One of their initiatives is focused on creating healthier food options and healthier promotions at our neighborhood’s convenience and grocery stores.

If we (neighbors) want it, they (local proprietors) will provide it!

GAVA is hosting a learning opportunity for our neighbors to learn how to make this happen. Juan Vila, with The Food Trust Initiative, will work with residents that are interested in working with our closest corner stores to make this a reality.
