White House Chef Sam Kass Joins Save-A-Lot For Food Bank Donation

Last updated on August 25th, 2022 at 10:27 am

White House Assistant Chef and Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives Sam Kass joined Save-A-Lot, one of the nation’s leading hard-discount, limited-assortment grocery chains, on Aug. 16 to donate $2,500 and 55,000 school supplies to the Capital Area Food Bank as part of Save-A-Lot’s 2012 Fuel Your Family Road Trip program. The donation will provide 7,500 meals for area families, and the school supplies will benefit children participating in the Capital Area Food Bank’s Kids Café and Weekend Bag programs.

Last year, Save-A-Lot and its parent company, Supervalu, joined with First Lady Michelle Obama and the Partnership for a Healthier America to announce plans to build 250 new Save-A-Lot stores in neighborhoods with limited or no immediate access to healthier foods—areas known as food deserts. The new stores will ultimately provide approximately 3.75 million people each week with healthier food options and, at the same time, create more than 6,000 new jobs in local communities.

In addition to its commitment to providing access to healthy, affordable food, Save-A-Lot is taking steps to help people make better food choices for themselves and their families, including as part of its Fuel Your Family Road Trip program.

Save-A-Lot’s Fuel Your Family Road Trip features two brand ambassadors—Road Scholars—making stops in 18 cities during a 2,000-mile journey between July 27 and Aug. 25 to help educate people about how they can eat healthy and affordably as the summer road trip season winds down and the new school year gets under way.

Along the Road Trip route, Save-A-Lot is donating $33,500 to local Feeding America food banks, which equates to more than 250,000 meals for families in need, and distributing nearly 165,000 school supplies.
