26-Year Old Black Woman Entrepreneur Launches Low Cost Organic Grocery StoreOlympia Auset, founder of SUPRMARKT
26-year old Olympia Auset, a native of Los Angeles and a graduate of Howard University, grew tired of having to travel 2 hours by bus every time she wanted to buy healthy vegan food. She live in Inglewood, and it quickly became clear that if she wanted better health around her, she would have to do something. So, she created and launched her very own organic grocery store.
There are many organic and vegan grocery stores, but very, very few of them are affordable to low income families and individuals. So Olympia created SÜPRMARKT – a low-cost, organic grocery that pops up weekly to provide 100% organic produce in areas with limited access to food.
Her mission is to make great health and healing within reach of communities that need it the most, and her grocery store’s motto is aptly named “Save Big. Eat Great.”
She comments, “I think the greatest takeaway about this project is it shows there are things every person can do to tackle societal issues that face their community. It isn’t always about waiting on corporations or governments to get things done.”
SÜPRMARKT blends new produce with slightly impaired produce to balance out the food waste question in Los Angeles. This means that Olympia has partnered with major organic suppliers in the Los Angeles area to distribute un-sellable food to communities that can make use of it.
The subscription service offers low-cost weekly packages of produce, and EBT is accepted for all food sales. These factors make SÜPRMARKT a viable solution in tackling the questions of food insecurity and food waste, while also building a healthier world.
Since starting in June 2016, Olympia’s grocery store has sold hundreds of cases of organic fruit, veggies, and seeds affordably to low income communities. She has also received grants from The Pollination Project and Co-opportunity, and leveraged the support of food figures such as Robert Egger of LA Kitchen and organizations like The Underground Museum.

Donald Trump isn’t even in office yet and he’s already ruffling feathers. Democrats and even a few Republicans aren’t too thrilled about The Donald taking over the White House on January 20. But, GOP officials in Maine and Arkansas may be anticipating the change in authority because they’ll be able to start limiting benefits received by those less fortunate.
So, where will the Trump administration start with cuts? According to PBS.org, the House Republicans are looking to overhaul the current Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food stamp plan. Although there is no plan to cut the food stamp program in its entirety, the major overhaul will bring about serious change.
In a nutshell, they plan to create more requirements and stipulations to make it much harder for recipients to continue receiving food stamps. However, the overhaul doesn’t stop there. In addition to jumping through hoops to get food stamps, they also plan to regulate what recipients can buy. That’s right. You won’t be able to purchase whatever you choose. It has been reported that junk food will be restricted. The incentive is reportedly a strategy to encourage recipients to purchase healthier food. But, the overhaul may not stop there. During an interview with The Associated Press, Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, revealed other areas may also be revised if it is determined that improvements are needed. “There’s nothing off the table when it comes to looking at solutions around these areas where we think improvements need to be made,” said Conway.
Right now, approximately 43 million people receive SNAP. Last year, the government spent an estimated $74 billion on the program in 2015, nearly twice the amount it cost in 2008. So, of course, Republicans are about to hit the SNAP program quite hard. As expected, people are angry and see the food stamp overhaul as another way for Trump to take from those in need so wealthy pockets can be fattened.

“The Pursuit of Understanding Self and Wisdom Attracts Critics”
Those who pursue the higher life of Understanding Self and the life of Wisdom, who seek to live by spiritual principles, must be prepared to be laughed at and condemned.
Many people who have progressively lowered their personal standards in an attempt to win social acceptance and life’s comforts bitterly resent those of philosophical bent who refuse to compromise their spiritual ideals and who seek to better themselves. Never live your life in reaction to these diminished souls. Be compassionate toward them, and at the same time hold to what you know is good.
When you begin your program of spiritual progress, chances are the people closest to you will deride you or accuse you of arrogance.
It is your job to comport yourself humbly and to consistently practicing your strong moral ideals. Cling to what you know in your heart is best. Then, if you are steadfast, the very people who ridicule you will come to admire you.
If you allow the mean-spirited opinions of others to make you waver in your purpose, you incur a double shame.
