Albertsons Companies Foundation, You’re Awesome!
This September when you visit your local Albertsons, VONS or Pavilions, you’ll see signs about the Hunger Is fundraiser and get an option to donate at checkout. Here’s a not-so-well-kept secret: the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank gets those donations!
We’re excited that the Alberstons Foundation chose the Food Bank as a charity partner for this year’s Hunger Is campaign. Every dollar donated at checkout will go directly to our organization. We’ll use the funds provide healthy breakfast foods for children in need throughout LA County as part of our Children’s Breakfast Program.
Hunger Is, a charitable program of the Albertsons Companies Foundation, has a very broad and ambitious goal — to eradicate hunger in America. The specific focus is creating and expanding breakfast programs for children.
“This gift will have a tremendous impact on our program,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the Food Bank. We’d like to thank the Albertsons Foundation for selecting us as their charity partner and supporting our efforts to fight hunger. We’d also like to thank EIF for its dedication to ensuring that no child has to start their day hungry.”
Please stop by your local participating grocery store and make a donation to the Hunger Is campaign from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30. Our kids will thank you.
