It all started over a decade ago. When Minnie’s Food Pantry was a new non-profit organization, Albertsons approved a request for a gift card to help us provide food to the 50 families we were serving monthly. Over the last 10 years, that partnership has flourished into one that helps us keep our doors open and provide more than dry goods to the hundreds of thousands of people we serve each year.
Through the Nourishing Neighbors program, Albertsons has made a commitment to provide hunger relief to the communities in which they operate.
Knowing that nutrition plays a factor in the health and wellbeing of an individual, along with having long-term implications on one’s standard of living, Nourishing Neighbors made a commitment to Minnie’s Food Pantry’s Breakfast Club program to ensure that every child we serve has easy access to healthy breakfast options. Furthermore, through their support, Minnie’s Food Pantry has been able to continue offsite deliveries and distributions in partnership with local schools to better serve our future generations and promote a complete nutritional diet for school-aged children!
Albertsons long-time support of Minnie’s Food Pantry through the holidays.
We know that there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for but especially so during the holiday season as many families gather to spend quality time together. Over the last 7 years, through in-store fundraisers, Albertsons has generously supported Minnie’s Food Pantry’s annual Thanksgiving Giveaway to provide a turkey, traditional trimmings, and fresh produce to thousands of families in need of a holiday meal.
It is with the help of their support that Minnie’s Food Pantry’s From Our Table To Yours Thanksgiving Giveaway has become one of our largest and most coveted events of the year.
During the Texas Winter Storms, Nourishing Neighbors took action once more and donated $25,000 towards Minnie’s Food Pantry’s emergency relief efforts, enabling our organization to restock the refrigerators and pantries of hundreds of families who had been impacted by the devastating and unpredictable weather our communities faced.
We are so grateful for our friends and family at Nourishing Neighbors and across all of the Albertsons Companies brands that continue to be a leader in the fight against hunger, not just here in North Texas but around our nation as a whole!
