Save Mart, Lucky, and FoodMaxx Kick Off Annual Friends Feeding Friends Community Holiday Food Drive November 8 – December 31

MODESTO, Calif., Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Save Mart Companies today announced the return of its storewide community food drive aptly named Friends Feeding Friends to support local community food banks and pantries during the holiday season. From Wednesday, November 8 through Sunday, December 31, customers at all Save Mart, Lucky, and FoodMaxx stores throughout California and Western Nevada can donate at check-out.

“So many in the neighborhoods we serve continue to face food insecurity and our Friends Feeding Friends food drive provides our stores and our valued shoppers the opportunity to lend a supportive hand to their neighbors in need this season,” said Donovan Ford, SVP and Chief Operations Officer at The Save Mart Companies. 

To make donating simple, customers can choose to purchase a bag of either $15 or $25 filled with grocery essentials and it’s then added to the shopper’s total grocery bill, and the tax-deductible contribution will be noted on their receipt.

“This holiday season, an average of 500,000 people a month will rely on Second Harvest for food as they feel the pinch of living in one of the most expensive regions in the nation,” said Leslie Bacho, CEO of Second Harvest of Silicon Valley. “We are so grateful to The Save Mart Companies’ local stores for supporting our neighbors who are struggling with food insecurity, and for helping us ensure they have access to nutritious food during the holidays and all year around.”
