WHAT IS SOUTH LA MARKET?
South LA Market is a community grocery store that provides fresh, healthy, and affordable produce in the middle of a food desert. We believe our community deserves access to quality foods where they live. South LA Market ensures equitable access to fresh produce and healthy foods. South LA Market also serves as the headquarters for the preparation and distribution of our South LA Grocery Giveaway.
SERVING SOUTH CENTRAL
Our Grocery Giveaway program is our pride and joy. Every week, with the help of volunteers, donors and sponsors, we’re able to make sure that our community has access to free, fresh and healthy food. Every week we provide over 200 bags that feeds over 1,000 local residents. Since June 2020, we have provided food to over 130,000 neighbors.
What our community is saying
“Es una bendición por uno que no tiene.”
“Treating us with humanity matters.”
“They treat us like their own family.”
“I used to be in these lines with my mom and I remember it was not fun. But I swore to myself, to my wife and family, it wouldn’t be like that here.”
“Everyone in the line has a different story. Not everyone is just poor and doesn’t have food. They’re people who haven't had as much opportunity or support. And we want to help level the playing field.”
