West Oakland supermarket shops for funds

It takes Paula Beal roughly two hours to get to and from a supermarket on the bus.

It’s not because she lives in a rural place far from shops and businesses. The 60-year-old lives in West Oakland. But it may as well be the middle of nowhere as far as a full-service grocery store is concerned – the nearest one is a Pak ‘n Save in Emeryville, about 1.5 miles away.
