Community Care

If there were ever a time to be reminded that we are all in this together, it would be now during this health crisis. We know the Coronavirus is bringing anxiety, uncertainly and stress to families across Southern California. During this pandemic, Northgate González Market’s resolve to help communities is even stronger. We were one of the first stores to open early to help our seniors, pregnant women, and people with disabilities.

Our unwavering commitment goes beyond helping customers who walk through our doors. We have committed more than $150,000 in the past few weeks to help secure food assistance to large and small local nonprofits who are serving the most vulnerable populations. Helping people who lCive and work by our grocery stores has been a commitment embedded in our corporate culture since the founding of the company 40 years ago with Don Miguel Jimenez González.

We see all of you as an extension of our familia. And, like family, we want to keep everyone safe and healthy. We are grateful you have chosen Northgate González Market as your trusted source for all your food and grocery item needs.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

UCSD Mas Fresco, More Fresh

In 2016 the University of California San Diego School of Medicine working in conjunction with Northgate Gonzalez Market received a $3.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to increase affordable food access to low-income community members who are part of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) formally known as the Food Stamp Program. The program called “Mas Fresco, More Fresh” is helping increase the purchase of fruit and vegetables among SNAP participants by providing incentives at point-of-purchase at Northgate stores. The effort promotes long-term health for SNAP participants and will provide financial incentive rebates on fruits and vegetable purchases, special fruit and vegetable promotions, and in-store cooking classes, store tours and education on food labeling. Snap participants who enroll in the program have opportunity to earn up to $40 per month for a year when they purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at participating Northgate stores. Furthermore, the program will provide researchers with key data to better understand healthy purchasing behaviors.
