Twice a year—in the spring and during Hunger Action Month™ (September)—Food for Sharing provides an opportunity for our customers to help alleviate hunger in our communities.
Donating is easy. Three predesigned donation options are made available at checkout. Once a donation option is selected, the cashier scans a key card, and the amount is added to the customer’s total order.
Our associates and customers donated over $9.6 million to Food for Sharing in 2017, and have donated more than $76.5 million in total since 2009.
Behind the scenes, we arrange for multiple food banks, pantries, and nonprofit organizations to receive the items to distribute to those families in need. We distribute full cases of products to these organizations within your community. For several years, we have worked with food banks, pantries, and nonprofit partners to eliminate waste in the donation process—realizing savings in transportation, labor, and damaged product. We support our partners’ efforts to help alleviate hunger through continued donations. This would not be possible without the generosity of our customers.
