Join the Fight

We keep our doors open by selling food to people who can afford it. One of the main ways we give back is by working to get food to those who can’t afford it. Since 2000, we’ve been formally involved in hunger relief, donating more than 90 million pounds of food to hunger and disaster relief, working with major hunger relief organizations, and helping create awareness of hunger through our KNOW Hunger program. To learn more about what we do in this area, you can visit our Hunger Relief website.
