Smith’s Program Provides Holiday Meals to Three Square Food Bank

November 9, 2012 by  

Smith’s Food & Drug is inviting customers to offer hope in the form of meals to others this holiday season. Starting now and continuing through December 29, each store will display six- foot “Bringing Hope to the Table for the Holidays” towers reminding us that one in six people in Utah does not have access to enough food.

Customers are invited to add a donation of $5, $10 or $15 to their grocery purchases. All contributions will be converted to Smith’s gift cards and given to Three Square Food Bank for turkeys, hams and staple food items like peanut butter and tuna.

“We hope our customers will use Bringing Hope to the Table program as a convenient means to donate to their local food bank,” said Marsha Gilford Smith’s vice president public affairs. “We invite our generous customers to create meals where there may otherwise be none for one in six of our neighbors.”

Smith’s Food & Drug is a leader in support for local food banks throughout its seven states of operation through cash contributions and the stores’ daily donations of nutritious yet unsaleable food items. In 2011, Smith’s 49 Nevada stores donated enough food to create 642,000 meals for the hungry, the great majority of whom are single women with children.

Smith’s is a division of the Kroger Co. which in 2011 was recognized by Forbes as America’s Most Generous Company. Smith’s charitable giving, in partnership with 15,600 associates, generous customers and suppliers, totaled $9.5 million in cash and food products to local organizations in 2011.
