Tis the season for giving back

Posted on

If you're trying to think of a way to help out your neighbors this holiday season, we've got you covered.  Starting today through Dec. 31st, our stores will be collecting canned and boxed goods through our Holiday Food Drive.  All food collected will be donated to local food banks and charities to help fight hunger this holiday season.

Food Banks need donations year-round, which is why all our stores donate products on a weekly basis. We're honored to support some amazing organizations, like Three Square Food Bank in Nevada, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance in Arizona, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and several regional Second Harvest/Feeding America Food Bank locations throughout California.  Hunger is unfortunately a persistent problem many of our neighbors struggle with, which is why we're so happy to be joining forces with our customers to help even more this holiday season.   

The LA Regional Food Bank told us the most popular items include pasta and sauce, rice, canned fruit, canned tuna, chicken and salmon, peanut butter, hot and cold cereals, and juice boxes. Baby formula, baby food and cereal are also needed. So next time you're in your fresh&easy store, donate one of these or any other non-perishable food item (maybe even some boxed stuffing, boxed mashed potatoes or canned cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving!) to help make the holidays brighter for those in need. 

Happy holidays!
