Save A Lot Spreads Holiday Cheer To Communities In Need

Save A Lot Brighter Holiday

Save A Lot, one of the largest discount grocery chains in the U.S., is kicking off the holiday season with its annual Bags for a Brighter Holiday food donation program. The program supports the local communities that Save A Lot operates in by donating high-quality food to local charities fighting hunger. Now through Dec. 31, customers can purchase pre-assembled bags of food for $4.49 at any of the 825 participating Save A Lot stores.

Each bag is stocked with private label and brand name food items, including pasta, stuffing mix, canned beans, meats and other pantry staples from the St. Louis-based company. All bags will be donated to local food charities and pantries, such as the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the Salvation Army and numerous regional food banks.

The Bags for a Brighter Holiday program continues to grow donations year-over-year, with a 2020 goal of 100,000 bags donated. In 2019, Save A Lot customers donated 82,676 bags – more than $411,000 worth of food – to support families in need.

“Now more than ever, families across the United States are in need of our help, and we’re thrilled to be bringing back the Bags for a Brighter Holiday program for the fifth year in which we, along with the help of local customers, can provide food to those in need,” said Kenneth McGrath, CEO. “We strive to support the local communities in which we operate each and every day, and this program is a true partnership with our customers. Their generosity, which helps put smiles on families’ faces across the country during the holidays and beyond, is what makes this program so special.”

Hunger impacts millions of families across the U.S. each year. Unfortunately, another result of the COVID-19 pandemic is that hunger has nearly tripled between last year and August of this year. The Bags for a Brighter Holiday program, with help from Save A Lot customers, will benefit charities in need of assistance now more than ever before across the country in an effort to ensure families have food on the table during the holidays.
