Our newest Community Event takes place throughout the month of November – Rock the Pantry! Participating stores have partnered with a local food bank to collect non-perishable food donations from November 1 – 30. Stores will have a collection bin where customers can drop off their donations.
We are working together to help end food insecurity, a huge issue in the U.S. More than 44 million people in our country face hunger, including 1 in 5 children. This affects 12.8% of households in the U.S and has increased since last year.

People who are food insecure are forced to make tough choices between buying food, paying medical bills, or rent. Through our Rock the Pantry Community Event, we are helping alleviate some of those tough decisions by providing our neighbors with healthy meals.
