New Seasons Market’s ‘Nourish Our Neighbors’ Helps Local Nonprofits

From May 15-21, New Seasons Market hosted its annual Nourish Our Neighbors Match (previously known as Hunger Relief Match), benefitting 10 local nonprofits that provide food equity and access.
The Portland, Oregon-based grocer matched customer donations throughout the week, aiming to double each dollar collected.
“Addressing the root causes of food insecurity and a lack of housing are closely connected. New Seasons Market believes in investing in our communities and supporting the work of local non-profit organizations. A focus on food access and equity allows the company to address the many root causes of hunger directly with the aid of our community partnerships,” said Jennifer Gregorich, community impact manager.
“We remain grateful to our generous customers and dedicated partners for their continued support of New Seasons Market’s commitment to give back to our community. Our goal is always to amplify the impact of our community partner’s work and make an immediate difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Together, we can do that.”
While New Seasons’ Nourish Our Neighbors Match is an annual event, many customers may not know that they can make gifts to nonprofit organizations at the register checkout year-round. New Seasons Markets has two additional avenues: Bag It Forward, a 5 cent donation for each reusable bag purchased, and Cans for Kids, a 10 cent donation for every redeemable can or bottle returned.
The nonprofits receiving money include Project Homeless Connect – Washington County, Transition Projects, Latino Network, Portland Backpack, NE Emergency Food Pantry, Lift UP, YWCA Clark County, Thimbleberry Collaborative Farm, Black Food Sovereignty Coalition and Self Enhancement Inc.
“New Seasons Market has been a longtime supporter of Transitions Projects, and we are excited to be a recipient of the Nourish our Neighbors campaign,” said Tony Bernal, CEO of Transition Projects, one of the beneficiary nonprofits.
“Transitions Projects’ work to engage folks at all levels of their journey – from homelessness to housing – is possible because of our supporters. Together, we can achieve a just community in which everyone has access to a safe, affordable home.”
