Save-A-Lot Campaign Provided Free Groceries


Earth City, Mo. Nine Save-A-Lot stores across the Pacific Northwest provided free groceries to residents on Saturday, and made contributions to regional Feeding America food banks.

Addressing the rising home foreclosures, job losses and requests for emergency food, Save-A-Lot launched the “Fuel Your Family for Free” event that gave its shoppers ingredients to prepare a spaghetti dinner. Shoppers who visited the stores on Saturday between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., were granted vouchers for one jar of pasta sauce, one box of spaghetti, two cans of vegetables, one package of garlic bread sticks and one eco tote bag.

"At its core, Save-A-Lot Food Stores is committed to helping families, and today that includes surviving this economic crisis," said Mark Colbo, regional director, Save-A-Lot Food Stores.

Following the campaign, Save-A-Lot Food Stores planned to tally the total number of dinners distributed to its customer base and then make a matching donation to regional Feeding America food bank partners. These food donations will be distributed to centers surrounding the participating Save-A-Lot store locations.

Save-A-Lot, which operates more than 1,100 stores, is a division of Supervalu.
