During this Crisis, The National Supermarket Association would like to come together to use this platform to urge our stores, vendors, supporters, and partners to donate to the NSA Covid-19 Cause. We will be using this fund to help support those most in need, by providing groceries and other essential items that will help these families during this crisis.
Founded in 1989 by Hispanic entrepreneurs, the NSA is a trade association that represents the interest of independent supermarket owners in New York and other urban cities throughout the East coast, Mid-Atlantic region and Florida. Beginning in the mid-seventies, these entrepreneurs had the courage of opening supermarkets in areas abandoned by the large chains, as they were economically depressed and mostly minority neighborhoods. These men and women had the vision and the commitment to fill a vacuum in those communities, at a time when the term “food desert” had not even been coined. Currently, many NSA members continue to serve those areas by offering healthy foods and full-service supermarkets.
