Safeway's Help Us End Hunger Holiday Campaign

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.
