Good Grocer

A nonprofit organization

Providing fresh, healthy food that is accessible and affordable to everyone in our community!



Good Grocer is a nonprofit volunteer-powered grocery store in south Minneapolis that relies on over 400 volunteers to operate every aspect of the store. Volunteers contribute 2.5 hours each month, and receive a 20% discount on their purchases! This also allows us to offer food at lower prices to all our customers.


All our profits are used to contribute to our FOOD OUTLET section, that offers discounts of up to 70% off for those neighbors who struggle with food insecurity. No one should go hungry.

This past year we have also distributed over 1,300 discount gift cards to our neighbors in an effort help ease the struggle to afford enough quality food. Sadly, 20% of our community struggles with food insecurity. Many of them volunteer and receive the 20% discount. Yet, when asked, a majority of them will say they volunteer to help others.


Your donation will help us continue our efforts to provide good healthy food to all our neighbors, and further assist those with additional needs to fight food insecurity. We appreciate every donation no matter how small or large. THANK YOU!

Help those in need access healthy foods at affordable prices by donating today! Thank you!

Good Grocer is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, public benefit charity.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Today we help hundreds of families get food in a more economic way and together we can do more!
