The NFC Foundation, a Nash Finch Co. charitable organization, provided more than $690,000 in grants and donations to nonprofit organizations in 2012, representing a 47 percent increase in giving over 2011.

The NFC Foundation provides funding to selected nonprofits in areas where Nash Finch associates live and work, primarily in the foundation’s focus areas of hunger relief and shelter.

Primary NFC Foundation 2012 nonprofit grant recipients were: Bridge for Youth, Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, CAP Agency, Casa de Esperanza, Dakota Woodlands, Families Moving Forward (Plymouth Church Neighborhood Foundation), Fisher House Foundation, Hope for the City, Keystone Community Services, Loaves & Fishes, Neighborhood House, Neighbors Inc., Perspectives Family Center. Sojourner Project Inc., Special Olympics Minnesota, Theresa Living Center, and Vetshouse.

In addition to the 17 nonprofit grants, the NFC Foundation made donations to a variety of local hunger relief agencies in 22 markets where the Minneapolis-based company operates distribution centers in the Midwest, Great Lakes and Southeastern United States.

“Thanks to all of those who supported our two major fundraising events and to our associates who continue to support the foundation through their payroll deductions, volunteering and through various lunches, flower sales and jean days,” said Gary Spinazze, chair of the NFC Foundation. “Because of the generosity of our donors and associates, we were able to give more back to our communities in 2012 than in previous years.”

The NFC Foundation also administers the Feeding Imagination educational program, which donates new and gently used K-6 reading books to children and nonprofits assisting them. Since the inception of the program in December 2006, more than 150,000 books have been donated.
