Associated Recreation Council recently received a $3,600 grant from Nourishing Neighbors. The grant was made possible by generous customers who visited the Crown Hill Safeway during September and donated at checkout to help provide healthy breakfasts for children.

As the charitable partner for the Crown Hill Safeway location, we are pleased to receive all of the funds collected from customers during the fundraiser. We plan to use the funds to to provide breakfast for children that are part of our childcare programs.

Nourishing Neighbors is a charitable program of Safeway Foundation. The program aims to eradicate childhood hunger in America by keeping food banks stocked and supporting meal distribution programs at schools. In 2020 Nourishing Neighbors enabled 350 million meals, invested $10.4 million in schools to feed kids, and provided $9 million towards empowering BIPOC communities through hunger programs.

Associated Recreation Council is proud to partner with Nourishing Neighbors to help fight hunger issues in our community.
