Giving back though our savings efforts has been something that I’ve always been passionate about. It’s always on my mind when I go to the store and am able to pick up a few extra items to donate to our local food bank or directly to a family in need.
Back in 2010 Bargain Blessings readers joined up with me as part of a huge Give Back Challenge and I was blown away by the generosity that was shown. I have no doubt that it touched our communities in enormous ways.
Did you know…
One in five children in America live in households without consistent access to adequate food.
The Albertsons/Safeway family of stores is working to change this statistic through a partnership with Hunger Is. I’m so excited about this initiative because they are making it so easy for each of us to make a difference.
Two Simple Ways YOU Can Make A Difference
There are two different ways that YOU can help the Hunger Is program:
Select stores have made it possible for shoppers to donate right at the register while checking out. This option is only available in select divisions (Eastern, Intermountain, Norther California, Southwest and Shaws/Star), so if you’re interested in giving in this way make sure to ask your cashier!
Purchase Participating Products
When we purchase participating products the Albertsons/Safeway family of stores will give back on our behalf! How great is that?! There are over 200 products participating from these brands:
It really is that simple! I’d be willing to guess that you may even have a few of the participating items on your shopping list already.
I stopped by our local Safeway store this afternoon and they had a variety of participating items displayed on end-caps and special displays right when I walked in the front door.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over here to find your local store and to get more details on how to give back!
