This giving campaign offers shoppers the opportunity to purchase bags of nutritious groceries, worth approximately $20, for only $10 at their neighborhood Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods or Food Source store. Through this annual program, Raley’s continues to make it easy for customers to donate to hungry families in local communities. Last year, the donation of 3.1 million pounds of food purchased by customers and colleagues who bought holiday bags between Nov. 15 and Dec. 24 surpassed the company’s 1 million pound goal.
Raley’s also offers its customers an easy way to give to local residents in need. The company brings a strong commitment to each community it serves with its support of Food For Families, its own non-profit charity that gathers donations year-round from customers and colleagues to help feed the hungry in the communities each store serves. One hundred percent of donations made in Roseville will go to the local Food For Families partner, The Salvation Army.
