Albertsons Companies Foundation Leading an Initiative to Tackle Summer Hunger in the U.S.

 The Albertsons Companies Foundation announced on June 12, 2024 the launch of a new collective effort focused on addressing childhood hunger this summer. By bringing together a coalition of leading nonprofit organizations, the first-of-its-kind initiative aims to drive awareness and boost participation in the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) new Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer for Children Program (Summer EBT), also known as SUN Bucks.

For more information, check out our blog post USDA EBT Program for Families, to see if you are someone you know is eligible.

It's a Farmer's Market Time of Year

Farmer’s Market on Sunday to food pantry clients on Monday

On Sunday May 5th, our Executive Director and the Warehouse Manager attended the Newark Famer’s Market to educate the market vendors on who we are add to our Food Recovery Partnerships. These partnerships help provide nutritious foods to our community and help use defeat hunger.

16 crates of produce — oranges, purple kale, boc choi, daikon, cilantro, Chinese greens, and collard greens — were gathered from the market vendors on Sunday and provided on Monday to our in-store shopping for clients the next day.

We are making this a scheduled food pick event for us. Come find us on Sundays, 12 -2PM at the Newark Farmer’s Market, 2086 Newpark Mall Rd in Newark.
