Broken Bread - Primary

A Walk Through South Los Angeles with Olympia Auset

There are 1.3 million residents but only 60 grocery stores in South Los Angeles; by comparison, the Westside has 600,000 residents and 57 grocery stores. Olympia Auset started SÜPRMARKT in response to this disparity, to deliver fresh organic produce to the doorsteps of people who have the least access to healthy and affordable food. Roy Choi visits with her to discuss the need that inspired her company and nonprofit, the prevalence of fast food and liquor stores in the area and the imbalances allowing these businesses to offer processed food for extremely affordable prices in so-called food deserts.
