With the support of our donors, The SOCIAL GROCERY in Tripoli opened its doors in September 2020. The store is the first non-profit grocery in Lebanon and is meeting the need of poor families in Tripoli, to whom buying from commercial supermarkets is becoming extremely expensive. Due to the economic, financial and political crisis, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic, almost half of the population in Lebanon has fallen below poverty line while prices of food have been sky-rocketing. For example basic items such as rice have tripled in price over the year. From the SOCIAL GROCERY, these goods can be bought for a reduced price.

Since opening the store, the SOCIAL GROCERY served more than 300 walk-in clients as well as provided 22 very vulnerable clients with a card membership that allows them to buy products for almost wholesale price. In addition, 19 persons have signed up as members who buy products for an increased markup as a form of contribution and social solidarity.
