Anabel’s Grocery is open to ANY Cornell student. We welcome and encourage students of all backgrounds shop here! This includes all Undergraduate, Graduate, and Continuing Education students.
Imagine the first 30 things you’d put in an empty fridge and pantry. Anabel’s sells inexpensive staples, such as pasta, rice and beans, fresh fruit and vegetables, frozen meats, dairy, eggs, bread, peanut butter, and so much more. We also have a variety of snacks to get you through the day!
Lower than the typical grocery store in Ithaca. However, our low prices will not compromise high quality foods!
Our store hours are 3-9 PM Tuesday-Thursday and 12-6 PM Friday-Sunday.
A USDA Food Insecurity survey will be administered to students who believe they may qualify for a subsidy. A 10% subsidy will be offered to students who qualify based on this USDA metric. This survey will be made available to students after they complete their free registration.
When students check out at the store, they present their Cornell student ID. All students receiving discounts will be entered into our point-of-sale system so that when their card is swiped, their discount is applied.Only the student working the cash register and the student paying for goods will be able to see the discount applied. The students working the cash register take confidentiality oaths and undergo comprehensive sensitivity training so that they can best respect students receiving the discounted price of goods.
We need a grocery store on campus to address the twin facts that Cornell has a high population of food insecure students, and nowhere on campus to buy inexpensive fresh produce and cooking staples. Anabel’s Grocery will offer nutritious, staple foods that students want in a convenient location at low prices, along with educational food-related programming perfect for college students.
