Giant Tiger Stores Limited Giant Tiger is Committed to Feeding F

Giant Tiger has announced that to date in 2021 it has raised more than $105,000 in food and funding for Food Banks across Canada. 

Giant Tiger stores are committed to fighting hunger and supporting the diverse communities they call home by actively raising money throughout the year to help feed families through an ongoing partnership with Food Banks Canada and working directly with local food banks across the country. Through the power of in-store customer donations, Giant Tiger's Round-up Campaign to Fill Plates, which ran from September 27 to October 10, raised $38,049 and will provide 76,098 meals to families in need. The funds collected go directly to a food bank of choice within the community of the local Giant Tiger store, allowing customers to support their neighbours in need and directly improve food security within their community.

Alongside collecting in-store donations, Giant Tiger stores also ran their annual brown bag campaign earlier this month. The brown bag campaign offers customers the opportunity to purchase $5 prefilled bags with select grocery essentials that are donated to their local food bank.   

"Giant Tiger is a people-first organization and we are dedicated to serving the communities we call home. We recognize that by working to end food insecurity we are working to build healthier communities," said Paul Wood, President and CEO, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "Traditionally, food banks are in high demand leading into the holiday season and now, more than ever, Canadians are feeling the financial impact of COVID-19. It's important for our stores to give back so everyone in their community will have access to safe and nutritious food."
