$10,000 Goal

Providing fresh, healthy food that is accessible and affordable while building a community based upon inclusiveness and dignity.

Good Grocer is a nonprofit grocery store located at 27th and Nicollet in South Minneapolis. Our mission is to provide quality food that is both affordable and accessible for all our neighbors. We are a full service grocer with one distinction. We are volunteer-powered. Volunteers are involved in stocking, cashiering, posting prices, and even prepping food in our kitchen. Volunteer support allows our socially-responsible business to reduce operating costs and pass those savings on to all shoppers, including the volunteers who receive a 20% discount.

Additionally, proceeds from all sales are used to help stock the Food Outlet section of the store, where those neighbors who struggle with food insecurity can shop with discounts up to 75% off.


Imagine not being able to afford enough food for your family? Sadly, 20 percent of our community faces this reality. Currently, there are over 400 members signed up for our FOOD OUTLET program, that offers additional discounts for those who struggle with food insecurity. Our mission is to provide fresh quality food while building community based upon inclusiveness and dignity.

100% of profits fights hunger.

No one should go hungry.
