Food Bites

Viola DavisBreakfast is the forgotten meal, but it doesn’t have to be. Giving back, while shopping for groceries just got easier. Shoppers at the Albertsons family of stores will have the opportunity to fight childhood hunger in their communities by giving to Hunger Is during an in-store fundraising campaign the month of September at more than 2,300 Albertsons family of stores across the U.S. Funds raised through the in-store campaign will contribute toward reaching the five million breakfasts goal. Emmy Award®-winning actress Viola Davis, is joining the cause. “We are thrilled to have Viola share her personal story and lend her voice again to this cause that continues to be prevalent in our communities,” said Lisa Paulsen, President & CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation…” Good changes are happening rapidly too. The program has seen continued success over the last three years, raising $12.5 million to date, to support local hunger programs. “I am so thrilled to see our communities coming together to support eradicating childhood hunger in America,” said Viola Davis. “The ‘Hungry for More’ public awareness campaign is integral in educating the public on how severe childhood hunger is – in every community – in America. It also demonstrates the importance of children starting off their day with breakfast.” For more information about the issue is available at HungerIs.org, along with simple ways for individuals to get involved and donate to stores including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Shaw’s, Star Market, Tom Thumb, Randalls, ACME Markets and others.
