Casita de Comida

Where grocery shopping meets community support

Established in 2022

How it works

Register

Shoppers register in advance with one of The Food Depot’s Navigators. Once registered, a time slot is saved for that family, ensuring everyone is able to shop comfortably.

Shop

Each shopper can visit the market once per month. On the day of their appointment, shoppers arrive at their scheduled time.

Items vary each time the market is open, but shoppers can expect a variety of produce, dairy, protein items, and shelves full of pantry staples.

Check-Out

Once finished shopping, each guest checks out with a staff member and can make another appointment.

The Food Depot's staff can answer any questions and provide additional wraparound services. Overall, a shopping experience should take about fifteen minutes.

I think the store is very, very good. When you couldn’t choose, there was food I had to take home, but now there will be enough food for everyone. People in Española need this store. Groceries are so expensive right now. My weekly grocery bill used to be $45 dollars, but now it’s $75!
