For the last month, customers of Albertsons have helped their friends and neighbors in need with donations at the register. The end result is incredible, with Albertsons and its loyal customers outdoing themselves once again, donating 2,832 holiday meals to recipients of The Idaho Foodbank as part of the “Turkey Bucks” campaign. The meal total is more than a 23-percent increase over last year.
The Thanksgiving dinners were provided through the “Turkey Bucks” campaign, which enables customers to round up their purchase or add $1, $5 or $10 as a donation.
“We are always blown away by the generosity of our incredible customers and associates,” said Brad Street, President of the Albertsons Companies Intermountain Division. “It’s an honor to play a role in the effort to feed members of our community this holiday season.”
The meals come at the perfect time for The Idaho Foodbank, which is hoping to distribute 2.5 million meals in the final two months of the year.
“Albertsons continues to deliver on its dedication to help with our mission to solve hunger in Idaho,” said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “These meals will brighten the holiday for thousands of Idaho families. We thank the associates and customers of Albertsons.”
