As for food security

Grocery Outlet’s campaign to address food insecurity is ongoing

On July 1, Grocery Outlet began a month-long Independence from Hunger campaign against food insecurity. Through July 31, customers can donate food and/or cash at the store that will go to local food-assistance agencies working in the community in which each store is located.

Nationally, 1 in 6 Americans are food insecure—defined as being without reliable access to nutritious, affordable food—while 46.5 million reported as living at or below the poverty level, according to a press release for the campaign.

Over the last three years, the campaign has raised a total of $818,677, and aims to exceed $1 million this year.

Chico’s Grocery Outlet, which is partnering with Veterans of Foreign Wars, is located at 2157 Pillsbury Road. Go to for more information on the campaign.
