Our Mission

Our mission is to operate a student-run grocery store on the Cornell campus that addresses food insecurity by providing access to healthy, affordable food and increasing food literacy.


Convenient on-campus location to purchase groceries.


Low-cost groceries for all Cornell students and subsidies for those who qualify.


Cooking classes and nutrition education to educate our Cornell community.

CTA is pleased to welcome Anabel’s Grocery as a new project. We are especially impressed by its innovative approach to addressing the stigma associated with food insecurity on campus. Anabel’s Grocery also provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn how to operate a nonprofit venture that is financially sustainable and has social impact, while benefiting from the safety and support of CTA's legal and fiduciary oversight.
