Raising money for local food banks

Save-On-Foods invites central Albertans to Share It Forward with the store’s campaign to support local food banks from June 13 to 19.

During the second annual Share It Forward, 50 per cent of the net proceeds of every Western Family product sold at Save-On-Foods, PriceSmart Foods and Urban Fare stores, up to $300,000, will be donated to local food banks in Western Canada.

Stores from Vancouver Island to Winnipeg to Whitehorse will take part in the campaign with in-store events, promotions and celebrations.

“This marks our second year running this initiative, and with a longer event period, and an even bigger commitment, Save-On-Foods, together with our Western Family partners, looks forward to giving back to our local community food banks once again,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones.

“Last summer, our stores and customers really came together to support their neighbours. I am so proud of what we accomplished together, and can’t wait to see what we can do this year.”
