During the Give. Share. CARE! Holiday Drive, all Save Mart, Lucky and FoodMaxx stores enable shoppers to contribute to local food banks at checkout. Community VIPs helped kick-off or highlight the campaign.
In Bakersfield, Mayor Harvey Hall made the first donation at a FoodMaxx store, giving $200 to Community Action of Kern Food Bank.
Just like all the high profile donors, customers can tear off a coupon and hand it to the cashier.
- Â $2 feeds one person breakfast
- $3 feeds one person lunch
- $5 feeds one person dinner
The coupon shoppers choose will be added to their grocery bill, and the tax deductible contribution will be noted on their receipt. 100% of all donations go to the local food bank assigned to each store.
Last year, the Holiday Giving campaign brought in more than $240,000 collectively from our 200+ stores for about 30 food banks throughout California and Northern Nevada.Â Donations at checkout from now until December 27.
