Safeway And Events DC Reimagine 2020 Safeway Feast Of Sharing

Safeway and Events DC, the convention and sports authority for DC, say the 21st annual Feast of Sharing is being reimagined for 2020. This year’s Feast of Sharing will retain the spirit of sharing and caring, but due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, Safeway and Events DC will not present their traditional live event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.  

On Tuesday, Nov. 24, Safeway and Events DC and their community partners will deliver 5,000 Thanksgiving meal boxes and 5,000 gift bags to 20 DC-area nonprofits. The pre-selected recipient organizations will distribute the Feast of Sharing meals and gifts to neighbors in need.  

“Safeway Feast of Sharing is a cherished holiday tradition. While we can’t gather in person this year, we are pleased to continue our tradition of sharing and caring,” said Safeway President Jim Perkins. “Alleviating hunger is an important priority for Safeway, and the need is greater than ever before. This Thanksgiving, we are proud to work with our local partners to provide meals and gifts to community nonprofits, allowing us to keep the Safeway Feast of Sharing spirit alive.” 

During this time of social distancing and small holiday celebrations, the Safeway Feast of Sharing meal boxes will provide recipients with a nutritious holiday meal. Each meal box will remind neighbors that their community cares and will feature a turkey sandwich with condiments (including cranberry relish), a side potato salad, an oatmeal cranberry cookie, an apple, a juice box, a bottled water and utensils.

“Giving back to the community is core to our mission at Events DC and every holiday season we look forward to serving our neighbors in need,” said Gregory A. O’Dell, president CEO of Events DC. “Safeway Feast of Sharing has become a treasured tradition in the District, and while we cannot be together this year, we look forward to reimagining the spirit of giving with our valued partners across the city. This annual event wouldn’t be possible without the commitment of our local partners, and we are thankful for their continued generosity each season.” 

To help keep neighbors warm and safe, the 5,000 Safeway Feast of Sharing gift bags will each contain winter clothing accessories and personal protective items, including a winter hat and scarf, a pair of gloves and socks, a face mask and small bottle of hand sanitizer.  

Safeway Feast of Sharing is made possible through the hard work and support of community partners, including Events DC, Truist, Aramark, Unity Health Care, The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command, Runway for a Cause Foundation, Projection, Metropolitan Baptist Church, Goodwill of Greater Washington, Hi-Tech Electric and Digital Conventions.

Safeway in the Mid-Atlantic Division is part of Albertsons Cos.
