We’re excited to open an early holiday gift from Albertsons and Safeway Foundation. We received a grant from their Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Fund. What a way to kick off the holiday season!
The grant will help us ensure the most vulnerable members of our community can also celebrate the season. We’re thrilled to receive this grant and look forward to putting it to good use in the fight against hunger.
This round of Nourishing Neighbors grants focuses on the needs of marginalized communities, which have been particularly hard hit. Roughly 86 percent of Latino households with children and 66 percent of Black households with children reported serious financial problems during the pandemic. Across the board, the numbers are staggering.
This funding will help us evolve our nutritional food market, more specifically to be used to upgrade our refrigeration unit.
Albertsons and Safeway Foundation Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Initiative was launched with a $53 million company donation earlier this year. Since then, generous customers have donated an additional $57 million at the register.
Thanks to Albertsons and Safeway Foundation for making our holiday season a little brighter!
