On The Third Day of Giving, My Food Bank Gave to Me…

By Sharon McBeth December 22, 2016

Three (hundred) grocers giving!

How does the food bank provide 46 million pounds of food to the community each year?
Well, with your help for starters, and with the support of over 18 of our area’s grocery chains. Grocers like Giant, Shoppers,  Food Lion, Safeway, Wegmans, Whole Foods, Mom’s and others annually donate hundreds of truckloads of food that quickly makes its way to kids and families.

I spend a lot of time on the road, visiting as many of our 300+ fantastic retail store locations as I can each year to make sure our partnerships stay strong (last quarter I made it to 85!). I meet with everyone from store managers to the folks who oversee getting donations onto trucks. They’re always happy to have a reminder of how important the good food they donate is to the community.
We couldn’t do our work without our retail partners, and we definitely can’t do it without you.  Please join us by making a gift this season, and thanks for your support!
