Olympia Auset, SÜPRMRKT

Date grant awarded: December 7, 2016

In Los Angeles, one native is making great strides to turn food deserts into food oases. Last June, Olympia Auset, aged 25 founded SÜPRMARKT, a low cost grocery which provides 100% organic produce affordably in areas where no grocery stores exist. By making organic food accessible and exposing communities to new choices in ways that feel familiar, SÜPRMARKT is implementing a model that is poised to create critical shifts in culture and health amongst populations most affected by diet related diseases.
