Making a difference — we need your support to help even more people than last year
Every year, Safeway promotes the spirit of giving to help make the holidays brighter for people who rely on the assistance of food banks. In 2013, our Help Us End Hunger food drive led to the donation of over 630,000 bags of food to local food banks. This year, we want to exceed that number to increase our impact in our communities — but we need your help!
Once again, Safeway is joining forces with our shoppers, local food banks, broadcast partners and Kraft Foods in the Help Us End Hunger food drive. Food donations will be collected through December 25 at most of our stores.
Safeway surpassed our goal to source 1 million pounds of responsibly produced palm oil in 2014 by sourcing over 2.6 million pounds of responsible palm oil as of October 1st. We also set a new goal for 2015.
The oil squeezed out of oil palm fruit is used in many different products and it comes from oil palm plantations based in tropical countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Nigeria. Some palm oil production has been linked to deforestation, wetland destruction and human rights violations, such as child labor and human trafficking.

SEATTLE - When you've got that gallon of milk and figured out what's for dinner, there's one last item to consider while grocery shopping. You'll see it on buttons worn by checkers at local Safeway stores. Their buttons say, "Please ask me to round up for research."
A nickel, dine or even a couple of bucks doesn't seem like much, but do the math and it adds up to a lot of dollars for breast cancer research done right here in the northwest.
