In 2020, Safeway’s food donations alone brought the equivalent of 3,921,838 meals to the Oregon Food Bank Network. Most recently, Safeway Albertsons customers have donated more than $660,000 to date through a register donation campaign as part of the KGW Great Food Drive.
Many stores across Oregon and Clark County, Washington participate in the Fresh Alliance program, in which they donate safe, edible grocery items that might otherwise be composted or discarded. Safeway is a key partner in Oregon Food Bank’s work to localize Fresh Alliance partnerships, matching local stores directly with nearby partner agencies. A New Local Focus is a core element of Oregon Food Bank’s 10-year vision.
