Project Description

Bodega Makeover, similar to Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Hotel Impossible and This Old House, is a docu-reality web series providing store improvements and healthy eating options for local neighborhoods. The host will meet with the business owner to find problems and will act as a consultant. He will bring community health experts and designers in the process.

eveAs a first generation Hispanic, I have witnessed many changes in my community. Growing up in the city of Boston, bodegas (small groceries stores) were the center of our connections–not just to buy groceries, but to share a joke, a recipe, stories from home, or the latest gossip. As a child, I would go to a bodega to get freshly peeled oranges for less than a dollar and the owner would ask me how my family was doing. Today, bodegas are saturated with unhealthy options and broken equipment.

The focus of this web show is to highlight the story of the bodega owners, local community residents, and organizations. Show your support for your community and local bodegas by supporting the Bodega Makeover Project.

With your support, we can shoot a short reel to pitch to sponsors and potential production companies. With the end goal of traveling to all 50 states in search of bodega owners and communities in need.

Join us on the journey to building healthier communities, one bodega at a time!
