Safeway is proud to be the single largest contributor to food banks and hunger prevention initiatives across Western Canada.
Our passion for food extends beyond our stores. Through a variety of local and regional activities, Safeway stores in every community we serve are a source for food donations, a hub for local food bank events and a partner in hunger prevention initiatives.
Every year we help reduce hunger by donating over $10 million in food products and financial contributions. Safeway is proud to be the single largest contributor to food banks and hunger prevention initiatives across Western Canada.
Food Drives and Events
To bring awareness to the needs of local food banks, Safeway supports food bank drives in communities across Western Canada. Throughout the year we host a range of events, in partnership with local media and community leaders, intended to reduce hunger and highlight the most needed items by local food banks
Safeway Care Packages
In 1995, Safeway launched the very first grocery store food hamper program in Western Canada. This innovative program continues to help local food banks through the sale of $5 and $10 Safeway Care Packages of the most needed items for local food banks. The packages offer value to our customers and provide a simple way to make a donation with a direct and local impact. In most stores, we have also identified the most needed food items through specially marked tags on our shelves. Safeway provides food hamper bins in every store as a convenient way for customers to help those less fortunate in their community.
