MAXA a Community Healthy Store in Barrio Logan

No comments
According to CDC, community health is a term used to describe the state of health and how easy or difficult it is to be healthy where people live, learn, work and play. The health of a community depends on the access to community resources such as healthy stores, wellness programs, community parks and much more. So as we strive each day to make a community healthy, I like to introduce you to a young entrepreneur couple who decided to open up a MAXA market in Barrio Logan.

The MAXA market was co-founded by Edgar and Gisel two Latinx enterprenuers who decided to take a leap to open up a small store that includes healthy Mexican snacks. Their mission is to provide the community with healthy alternative snacks as well as teach visitors and community members about the different products that exist beyond the traditional grocery store. MAXA team is one of many small groups in the community who work together to prevent disease and make healthy living options access in Barrio Logan.
