Natural Grocers Launches In-Store Fundraiser, Food Drive

Natural Grocers

Lakewood, Colorado-based Natural Grocers is running an in-store holiday fundraiser for its food bank partners through Dec. 31. This campaign is in addition to the company’s ongoing Bring Your Own Bag program, which donates five cents per shopping trip to local food bank partners when customers bring in reusable bags.

Customers can contribute throughout the holidays in two ways:

  • Donate $1, $5 or $10 at the register. These funds will go to the same food bank that is receiving donations from Natural Grocers through the program.
  • Purchase and donate non-perishable Natural Grocers items, collected at the front of the store. These donations will go to the local food bank partner or local food pantry that receives food donations from the company.

Commitment to community

A “Commitment to Community” is one of Natural Grocers’ five founding principles. Since its inception in 1955, the company has developed partnerships with various charities in the 21 states the company serves, including organizations that focus on fighting food insecurity.

In the company’s home of Colorado and neighboring Wyoming, the number of individuals estimated to be food insecure in 2021 was one in eight. For children, that number was even higher: one in seven in Colorado and one in six in Wyoming. Natural Grocers partners with both the Food Bank of the Rockies and the Food Bank of Wyoming, as well as other partners to help meet the needs of their communities.

“Sharing a meal with loved ones is something many of us look forward to around the holidays,” said Raquel Isely, VP of Natural Grocers. “But the holidays can also magnify food insecurity and financial stress for those struggling financially.

“The relationships we’ve developed with local hunger-relief organizations help battle food insecurity year-round, but we wanted to do more this holiday season. Though we’ve just started promoting this campaign in our stores, it’s already gained considerable momentum. This is a humbling reminder of our customers’ generosity and it’s a testament to the enthusiasm and empathy of our crew.”
