San Francisco Opens Taxpayer-Funded ‘Free’ Grocery Store

Democrat-controlled San Francisco has opened a new store that offers residents “free” groceries.

However, despite the best efforts of socialist Democrats to gaslight us into believing otherwise, nothing is “free.”

The “Food Empowerment Market” is, of course, funded by taxpayers.

The grand opening of the District 10 Community Market in Bayview-Hunters Point was announced in a press release from Democrat Mayor London Breed’s office.

The 4,000-square-foot store is part of a pilot program providing “free” food to those who want it.

According to the mayor’s office, the store provides “free and healthy multicultural groceries” to residents “experiencing food insecurity in the Southeast corridor of the City.”

“If we didn’t tell you it was free you’d think you’d have to pay,” the press release notes.

San Francisco Human Services Agency granted Bayview Hunters Point Multipurpose Senior Services a $5.5 million taxpayer-funded grant to stock the market with fresh produce.

According to the city, the market will serve approximately 4,500 residents.

Breed called the grand opening of the store “a major step toward improving food access in a part of the City that has historically been a food desert.”

She also invoked the Marxist ideology of “equity” while justifying the taxpayer-funded scheme.

“Equitable access to fresh and healthy food options is critical for communities to thrive and to ensure we take care of the City’s most vulnerable residents,” Breed added.

Many grocery stores in the area have shuttered in large part due to high crime.
