Help launch Luna’s Groceries and end the Allied food desert.

This is community action happening just to our south.

A word from the owners-

Hello! We are Mariam and Joe Maldonado, owners of your Allied-Dunns Marsh neighborhood grocery store, Luna’s Groceries. Our family has lived in the Allied-Dunns Marsh Neighborhood for the past 6 years and love our vibrant, diverse space with people from all walks of life, cultures, and economic backgrounds. We see the neighborhood having everything we could ask for to raise a happy healthy family….well almost everything.

In the past few years, since the closing of the Cub’s Foods, our area has been identified as a “food desert” here in our thriving city. For almost a decade our community has not had a close walkable grocery store.

We want to change that. This winter, we will be opening Luna’s Groceries, a full service market featuring high quality meat, fresh local produce, and specialty items to serve our diverse customers. We are located on 2010 Red Arrow Trail in the heart of Allied. Since March we’ve been hard at work, purchasing equipment breaking down walls, pulling floor tiles, sanding, painting, and getting the pipes and wires ready so that the building has the energy that it takes to serve this community. We’re almost at the finish line, but we need you to help us get there.

Be a part of progress for our neighborhood, our city, our people! We are seeking to raise $50,000 as we are in the home stretch and are looking to open within the next few weeks. With that being said, we are announcing the Friends of Luna’s Campaign.  Be one of our “MAJOR” donors ($1,000+) and get a mural on the outside wall of Luna’s for a year.

Will you join us and become a Friend of Luna’s? We are all in this together!
