Independence from Hunger
When kids are out of school for the summer, more families are at risk of experiencing hunger. The Grocery Outlet’s 8th Annual Independence from Hunger Campaign runs through July. You can help with “Give $5, Get $5”, donate $5 or more in a single transaction in-store or online and receive a coupon for $5 off a future purchase of $25 or more. You can also purchase a pre-made grocery bag, make a cash donation at the register, or donate online at GroceryOutlet.com/donate. Online donations support the Bay Area community through the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
