Lakewood, CO—Natural Grocers has announced that its food bank donation efforts from August 2020 through July 2021 raised more than $800,000 in its efforts to fight food insecurity (more than 3.2 million meals for people in need).
“We proudly partner with local food banks throughout the year because we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality, healthy, nutrient-dense foods,” explained Raquel Isely, Natural Grocers Vice President of Marketing. “We couldn’t have done it without our customers! Over the past 20 years, we’ve donated 5 cents to local food banks every time a customer shops with a reusable bag. Next time you shop with us, be sure to bring your reusable bag to support your local community. Or, buy one of our bags and bring it back with you the next time you shop with us.”
The retailer isn't finished yet. In September, Natural Grocers will donate $2.00 for every Ladybug Zip Pouch reusable bag (retail $2.99) sold. Additionally, from November 1 through December 31, 2021, customers can donate $1, $5, or $10 at the register to help those experiencing food insecurity in their community.
