The inspiration of Net's Mini Market came from a childhood resident recognizing food insecurity within her community.  After long discussions and conversations with her grandmother, she learned about the history of an area that once thrived with black owned businesses such as Barber shops, Dental offices, Mini Marts, Theaters, and much more for local communist. At a time where African Americans were once only allowed and felt safe, the demolishment of all commerce and housing were taken away, leaving the community densified and with lack of business support.

Antoinet has full commitment and demonstrates passion with ensuring she understands the community needs when it comes to food accessibility. But the task can not be done alone! We are asking for your support not just with Net's Mini Market , but to bring back the need and awareness of businesses that brought life to what was once a thriving community.
