New Branch of Northgate Market Opens in South Los Angeles
A full service supermarket held its grand opening Monday in South Los Angeles. The new Northgate Gonzalez Market will provide healthier, fresher food options and more jobs for the community.
The California FreshWorks Fund awarded Northgate Gonzalez a $50,000 grant and $5.5 million loan to provide healthier options and jobs for the communities that need it most. The new market will bring more than 100 new living wage jobs with benefits to South Los Angeles.
Northgate Gonzalez has partnered with Los Angeles and California FreshWorks to pursue a commitment to a local and diverse hiring plan, including working with Homeboy Industires, which helps to employ former gang members.
