MO's Community Mapping Project
During the MO's community mapping project, me and my group found out both healthy and unhealthy places around the Lakeshore, Oakland. We started from Oakland High, walked all the way to Lakeshore, Subway. During the walk, me and my group saw bunch of litters around the street, or in the walkway. When we made it to Subway, we saw that Subway was in between a shopping district, where there has Starbucks, cafes, restaurants, and markets. We walked around those areas, we investigated that there were some healthy places for the students to have lunch. For example, like Lakeshore Produce, selling all the fresh fruits and vegetables. We walked in and interviewed the owner, but the owner didn't give us much information. Unhealthy place was the liquor store, selling wines, beers, cigarettes.Our station Subway is selling healthy, and real meat sandwiches. Inside Subway, the environment were peaceful with music playing, and warm air. The floor, chairs, tables, cabinets, and drinking machines are very clean. The workers are very friendly to the costumers. Outside Subway, the environment was cold and cars passing by. Subway would be healthy and great place for Oakland High students to have a lunch outside campus. Only 15 minutes walking from Oakland High to Subway, 5 minutes for buses.
