Every year, Safeway promotes the spirit of giving to help make the holidays brighter for people who rely on the assistance of food banks. In 2013, our Help Us End Hunger food drive led to the donation of over 630,000 bags of food to local food banks. This year, we want to exceed that number to increase our impact in our communities — but we need your help!
Once again, Safeway is joining forces with our shoppers, local food banks, broadcast partners and Kraft Foods in the Help Us End Hunger food drive. Food donations will be collected through December 25 at most of our stores.
It’s easy to participate. Shoppers can purchase a pre-filled grocery bag of food for $10* to place inside in-store donation bins. We have ensured that the bags include the items that food banks need most.
Each bag contains:
- Canned tuna
- Pasta sauce
- Canned vegetables
- Peanut butter
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned soup
Let’s top last year’s campaign by donating more bags than ever to our local food banks. Working together, we can provide millions of meals for families and people in need this holiday season.
*Bags in our Portland and Texas Divisions are sold for $8.26.
