Safeway is an active member in the communities we are a part of and contribute to the vibrancy of the neighbourhoods where our customers and employees live, work and play.
Programs that help alleviate hunger, support nutrition education and inspire healthy living are at the heart of our community focus. Daily donations to local food banks, food access for those in need, and healthy snacks for family events and festivals are commonly contributed through our stores
Sponsorship of regional fairs and festivals such as the PNE, Calgary Stampede, Taste of Edmonton, Saskatoon Prairieland Ex and Winnipeg Children’s Festival help contribute special family experiences.
By supporting a diverse and inclusive environment, Safeway is helping create stronger communities. We are proud of our involvement in hundreds of diverse community events including:
- the Vaisakhi celebration
- Pride Parade
- Special Olympics games
- Aboriginal Awareness days
Safeway’s commitment to diversity and thoughtful people practices is a core element in our philosophy, which ensures our employees reflect the diverse communities we serve. Safeway has been honoured with many awards for our hiring practices, and seek opportunities to support community events and activities that celebrate all Canadians.
Safeway supports a number of agriculture fairs and festivals, as well as hundreds of 4-H clubs. We are also a lead supporter of buy local initiatives across Western Canada.
