Safeway Food Drive Raises 13,105 Meals in One Day

On Saturday, November 19th teams of volunteers greeted shoppers at local Safeway stores to collect food and cash donations for Second Harvest’s Holiday Food Drive.

At the Safeway store on 41st Avenue in Capitola, Grind Out Hunger volunteers raised 1200 meals out of the overall total.

Special thanks to the morning team from KDON for taking the time to come down to the store and greet shoppers. It may have been chilly but everyone was in great spirits and having a good time.

At the Aptos store, staff from KTOM and KION greeted shoppers. And in Freedom, it was La Preciosa. Thanks to all our media partners for their support!

Safeway’s food drive continues through December 24th. To make it easy, Safeway has pre-packaged donation bags available for purchase. Any donation of non-perishable food will go a long way toward helping our neighbors in need.
