FOOD For Lane County recently received a $31,701.45 grant from Nourishing Neighbors. The grant was made possible by generous customers who visited Albertsons and Safeway locations throughout Lane County during September and donated at checkout to help provide healthy breakfasts for children. Thank you!
As the charitable partner for these locations we are pleased to receive all of the funds collected from customers during the fundraiser. We plan to use the funds to purchase grab and go breakfast foods for kids to be distributed by our Emergency Food Box pantry network throughout Lane County.
Nourishing Neighbors is a charitable program of Albertsons Companies Foundation. The program aims to eradicate childhood hunger in America by keeping food banks stocked and supporting meal distribution programs at schools. In 2020, Nourishing Neighbors enabled 350 million meals, invested $10.4 million in schools to feed kids and provided $9 million towards empowering BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities through hunger programs.
FOOD For Lane County is proud to partner with Nourishing Neighbors to help fight hunger issues in our community.
