Cardenas American Heart Association

Ontario, California-based Cardenas Markets Foundation has announced that $50,000 has been donated to 25 food banks and pantries in the areas where Cardenas Markets operates. 

According to Feeding America, one in six Hispanic people experience food insecurity, and Latino children are more than twice as likely to face hunger as non-Latino children. 

“We are honored to partner with our local food banks to assist in alleviating food insecurity,” said Adam Salgado, president of the Cardenas Markets Foundation.

“Through the efforts of the Cardenas Markets Foundation, Cardenas Markets is much more than your local grocery store. We are a pillar of ongoing community support committed to strengthening our communities by addressing and meeting their vital needs.”

The organizations are Alameda County Community Food Bank, Carol’s Kitchen, City Mission Of Las Vegas, Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County, Corona/ Norco Settlement House, Find Food Bank, First Lutheran Church Food Pantry, Food Bank Monterey County, Fruit of Our Hands Ministries, Helping Hands, Helping Our People of Elsinore and Imperial Valley Food Bank.
