Food for Sharing provides an opportunity for our customers to share hope, love, and joy when they donate to help hungry families. Customers can directly impact the efforts within their communities to alleviate hunger when they give to this easy donation program.
Twice a year in the spring and fall, donation options representing three predesigned levels of giving are made available to our associates and customers at checkout. Once the customer selects a donation level, the cashier scans a key card, and the amount is added to the customer’s total order. Customers can also donate any other amount they wish.
Our associates and customers donated over $14.8 million to Food for Sharing last year, and since 2009, have donated more than $68.8 million in total.
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.
