Save-On-Foods is launching its third annual Share It Forward campaign to support foods banks across Western Canada.
Save-On-Foods and Western Family are teaming up to donate 50 per cent of all net proceeds on Western Family products sold between June 11 and June 17, 2020 to Western Canadian food banks.
Save-On-Foods is aiming to donate $300,000 to its food bank partners in every community served from Vancouver Island to Winnipeg to Whitehorse and everywhere in between.
The seven-day event will see half of all net proceeds of every Western Family product sold at Save-On-Foods, PriceSmart Foods and Urban Fare stores across Western Canada donated directly to local food banks. All donations will stay in the communities they were raised.
“With more Western Canadians relying on food banks during this crisis, it’s absolutely critical that we do our part to come together to support our neighbours,” says Darrell Jones, president of Save-On-Foods. “The work our food bank partners do for their communities is so important, especially now. I am so proud of the results of our last two Share It Forward events and I can’t wait to see what we can do this year.”
For more than 100 years, Save-On-Foods has been a passionate supporter of children and families in Western Canada. Annual donations of food and consumer goods worth more than $3 million are distributed to local food banks, along with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash raised through community and store fundraisers.
