Grocery Outlet Food Drive
Extreme value retailer Grocery Outlet has launched its ninth consecutive ‘Independence from Hunger’ food drive to combat summer food insecurity. During the month-long campaign, over 320 Grocery Outlet locations will collect food and cash donations in-store to be distributed directly to local food agencies across the country.
15 million households have limited access to food sources and suffer from food insecurity. This risk of food insecurity increases during the summer months, as many families can also lose access to school supported food programs, and food banks deal with limited supplies.
Since its launch in 2011, the ‘Independence from Hunger’ campaign efforts have collected more than $5 million nationwide. Each independently owned and operated Grocery Outlet store is committed to giving back to the local community and have partnered locally to bring the community together in providing families nutritious food.
Residents can contribute in multiple ways – either by picking up a pre-made bag, participating in “Give $5, Get $5,” or donating online at GroceryOutlet.com/Donate. Online donations will support Grocery Outlet’s San Francisco Bay area partner, Alameda County Community Food Bank.
