Join Gelson's Chainwide Community Food Drive 2017

 

 

 

Gelson's will hold its annual Holiday season food drive from November 13-26. All 26 stores will participate in the food drive as part of our commitment to contribute to the communities we serve, while also donating more than $2 million each year in products and cash to nonprofits focused on hunger.

Recurring partner organizations include AIDS Project Los Angeles, Food Finders, Food Share, La Cañada Community Center, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Second HarvestUnity ShoppeFeeding San DiegoRancho Mirage’s F.I.N.D. Covering our new location in Thousand Oaks is our food partner Manna.

On weekends, volunteers from several of these organizations will visit select Gelson’s stores with lists of needed items; other stores will have bins where customers can donate items. Healthy (e.g., low-sodium, low-sugar), non-perishable foods are most needed, such as peanut and other nut butters, dried or canned beans, canned vegetables, canned meats/fish, canned fruit, whole grain cereal, whole grain pasta, soup, rice, granola bars, etc.
