Industrial West Oakland seems an unlikely spot to find a homey restaurant thriving, but on the Mandela Parkway Tanya Holland’s Brown Sugar Kitchen is doing just that—and it’s serving the most amazing waffles. Next we met up with Nikki Henderson. She runs the food-justice nonprofit People’s Grocery, which is helping residents of the neighborhood build a better food system with equal access to fresh, healthy food.
