The Save Mart Companies is proud to participate in Feeding America’s Fresh Rescue program. Each of our stores donates its safe, unsaleable fresh foods to local food banks throughout our operating area. In 2019, our stores donated more than 7.2 million pounds of fresh food to local food banks in communities we serve.
Look for opportunities to support your local food bank in our stores! Twice a year we hold store-based events–the Annual Peanut Butter Round-up in May and our Give.Share.Care! program during the holiday season.
In some communities, we partner with food banks on special campaigns. In Sacramento, for instance, we help collect turkeys during the turkey drive. In Fresno, we help collect canned goods at the Big Fresno Fair. We embrace our role in helping stamp out hunger, one meal at a time.
