One month before opening a new grocery store in South Gate, Northgate González Market recently partnered with the city and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank for a drive-thru food distribution event for families in need.
The Latino-themed grocery store distributed about 24,000 pounds of groceries including pinto beans, cans of corn and other vegetables, cereal, apple juice, spaghetti pasta and sauce, peanut butter, noodle soups, tuna, bottled water, fresh produce and baby supplies. Baby2Baby nonprofit delivered three pallets of diapers to hand out.
Six hundred families were served, thanks to the help of local Northgate Market volunteers. As a special touch since it was Mexican Mother’s Day, all moms received a rose from the floral department at Northgate Market.
Founded in 1980 Northgate González Market is an authentic, family-owned and operated Hispanic supermarket chain with 40 stores in Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego counties. Headquartered in Anaheim, California, it maintains its cultural heritage by offering its customers the best quality and freshest foods, and personalized service.
