Grocery Outlet continued supporting the communities we serve with our Independence From Hunger® Food Drive campaign this past July. Our more than 270 Grocery Outlet stores partnered with a local food agency, directing support to the communities we serve. Working together with our great customers the stores raised over $1.0 million dollars. Thanks to all who supported this great cause.

Grocery Outlet has launched its 5th Annual Independence From Hunger® Food Drive today to donate food throughout July, traditionally a time when food agencies experience the greatest need to serve children who are off from school during the summer. According to the Food Research and Action Center, 6 out of 7 low-income kids who eat a free or reduced-price school lunch during the academic year do not get a free meal during the summer.
