With just a couple days left in their Indiegogo campaign, SÜPRMARKT LA is on a mission to keep Slausonequipped with fresh food. Let’s change habits and save lives by providing accessible, affordable access to the quality food everybody deserves. South Central is home to 1.3 million residents and just 60 grocery stores. One of the oldest + only healthy establishments on Slauson Blvd recently closed. Back this campaign to help SÜPRMARKT LA carry on the legacy of Mr. Wisdom’s by providing organics, fresh healthy meals, & great for you goods in an area that really needs it. Snag some awesome perks while you’re at it! #KSF
Health disparities kill more people than anything else in our country, and 24 million Americans live without fresh food access. These conditions shorten life expectancies in marginalized communities before babies take their first breath. https://jesuswired.com/writing/buy-custom-papers-online/12/ http://go.culinaryinstitute.edu/write-an-essay-on-indian-army/ http://parentinginprogress.net/8206-top-critical-thinking-writing-website-for-school/ interesting ways to start an essay see learning from your mistakes essay see url analytical essay writing help https://austinmusicfoundation.org/papers/hair-salon-business-plan/2020/ pay someone cheap to write paper for you http://jeromechamber.com/event/essay-about-television/23/ viagra online is it safe big data retail case study affordable writing services go here actor headshots resume native writers essay contest best term paper services biography writers good term paper topic click here literary analysis thesis statement formula pharmaceuticals sales representative resume uk essay writing service trustpilot will you help me with my homework http://www.naymz.com/a-child-doing-homework/ go site http://www.nationalnewstoday.com/medical/viagra-plus/2/ go to site Enough is Enough. It is time to take a bite out of hunger by establishing healthy affordable food options in our Hoods.
SÜPRMARKT was founded in 2016 to provide weekly produce pop ups + deliveries services which make it easy and affordable to eat well in LA’s food deserts. Since starting, we’ve served up over 25,000 pounds of produce in South Central & beyond and we are taking our next big step by opening a healthy retail location.
Actually doing it.
Our biggest lesson from Nipsey’s life is actually doing what you know is needed instead of wasting time thinking about it.
This turning point will empower us to not just think of solving food disparities in our neighborhoods but to ACTUALLY DO IT. If you know there is something wrong with leaving your neighborhood everytime you crave a salad, and want your children to grow up in a world where their life expectancy isn’t 20 years shorter because there is no quality food around, please do everything in your power to spread the word and help get this off the ground.
What We Need & What You Get
Essential Goal: 111k Downpayment & Renovations
To secure the Mr. Wisdom’s space, we’ll need $65,000 for a down payment, as well as another estimated $25,000 to renovate and modernize the space. This amount gets our foot in the door with some of the resources needed to turn this establishment back into a health store. We estimate $5,500 would go to Indiegogo fees, and $4,500 would go toward perk fulfillment.
Stretch Goal: 250k Downpayment, Inventory, Renovations, Staff
This amount is our sweet spot. It allows for a larger downpayment of $140,000, resulting in a lower mortgage, and allows us to budget $40,000 for renovations, $25,000 for staff and $23,000 for inventory. We estimate $12,500 would go to Indiegogo fees, and $5,500 would go toward perk fulfillment.
Ultimate Goal: 750k Purchase Property, Renovation, Inventory, Staff, Insurance
This would be phenomenal. Raising this amount would allow us to purchase the property outright, so that we can guarantee our service to the community for decades to come and never have to worry about eviction or rent increases.
$520,000 would mostly pay for the property, with $70,000 for renovations, $50,000 for staff and for $34,000 for inventory, $30,000 and for other concerns like marketing and insurance, giving us a great start to a successful business that will serve the community for decades to come. We estimate $37,500 would go to Indiegogo fees, and $8,500 would go toward perk fulfillment.
Dream: 1.2 Million Everything above + Free community dinners and programs.
An additional $450,000 would help us expand our community impact. SÜPRSEED is a 501(c)3 that powers events, grocery giveaways, juice cleanse scholarships and more to create the experiences and support systems needed for long term lifestyle changes. Raising 1.2 million is a dream that would empower us to continue free plant based dinners Mr. Wisdom lead each week, offer support to other healthy food start ups in the area, discount goods in the store based on the area median income, and make a huge and lasting impact on South Central’s health for good.
Risks & Challenges
SÜPRMARKT has been in business for almost 3 years, serving the local community with affordable produce boxes, popup dinners, and educational food seminars. Our work has been featured by Forbes, Tastemade, Popsugar, SXSW, Afropunk, and more.
It is always a risk to open a brick and mortar location— but the neighborhood needs this. We’re the right fit to step in and take over where Mr. Wisdom’s left off.
Our biggest plus is that we have worked out many of the learning curve kinks associated with grocery service and built up a customer base. That said, these areas will be new challenges for us:
- Starting a Kitchen
- Building out a physical location
We are grateful to have access to support and guidance from organizations like:
to help guide us through this new process.
