BENEFITING: THE BERKELEY FRIENDS CHURCH
Independence from Hunger® is a month-long, company-wide campaign where customers can donate food and/or cash to support local food assistance partners. Grocery Outlet stores are teaming up with a number of local agencies in their local communities and all donations received throughout the campaign will go directly to each store’s designated agency.
We will be raising money for the Berkeley Food Pantry (A.K.A. The Berkeley and Friends Church) via our social channels.
For the fourth consecutive year, the USDA reported that 1 in every 6 Americans is food insecure and 46.5 million Americans (15%) were reported as living at or below the poverty level in 2012 (U.S. Census Bureau, Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the U.S. - Data collected in 2012 and released September, 2013.). Throughout July, traditionally a time when food agencies experience the greatest need, Grocery Outlets will encourage their customers and employees to donate food and cash in support of neighborhood food assistance agencies.
