Year-round and especially during the holiday season Stater Bros. makes a major commitment to help its friends and neighbors who are faced with hunger. Through monetary donations from Stater Bros. Charities as well as through in-kind donations of food, each year Stater Bros. helps to provide meals for over 8 million individuals who are faced with hunger.
The 3rd Annual “Harvesting Hope” in Southern California communities puts extra emphasis on hunger relief during November and December, and food barrels are placed in all 167 Stater Bros. Supermarkets as well as at the Company’s Corporate Offices and Distribution Center to collect nonperishable food items for struggling families.
Leading up to Thanksgiving, Stater Bros. makes a substantial contribution towards the purchase of over 5,700 turkeys to assist nonprofit organizations that feed the hungry.
“Many of our hard working customers have exhausted their resources and are being forced to get extra help this holiday season. Stater Bros. is going to help in the best way we know how by keeping our prices low and helping our food banks get a big boost for the holiday season,” said Jack H. Brown, chairman and CEO of Stater Bros. Supermarkets.
