Safeway & Albertsons Make Sure Kids Have Breakfast

Janie Gianotsos Faces of Hunger, Large Group Volunteering, Newsy

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Especially if you’re a growing kid.  This spring, Safeway and Albertsons’ Denver Division volunteered to help pack Totes of Hope® for students at Swansea Elementary to celebrate a very generous and important gift for hungry kids.  Most of the students at Swansea are on free and reduced lunch, living at or below the poverty level. These kids and many other food-insecure children across our service area will have extra breakfast food added to their totes this summer, thanks to the Albertsons Companies Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.  The generous $100,000 grant will provide breakfast foods in all the totes we distribute this summer!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible for hungry kids.  We appreciate you! And you can tell by the smiling faces, these little ones appreciate you too.
