Save Mart and FoodMaxx sponsored the Feed the Need Food Drive. at the Big Fresno Fair. For every 5 cans of food visitors brought, they received a free ticket to the fair.
To start things off with a bang, Save Mart donated 1,000 cans of chili and 1,000 packages of pasta. FoodMaxx donated 1,000 cans of corn. And media partners, CBS 47 and KSEE 24 carried the donations live on TV. Juan Chavez from our Visalia store also made the donation live on Facebook with Univision 21.
By the end of the food drive, 79,470 lbs. of food was collected. That’s a 13,593 lb. increase over the 2016 collection totals (which were 65,877 lbs.)! Way to go, Fresno! Save Mart and FoodMaxx appreciate the joint effort in the fight against hunger.
