Avanza Supermarkets Donates 50 Tons of Food to Catholic Charities

Nash Finch Co.'s Avanza stores in Denver and Greeley Colo., and Omaha, Neb., donated a total of 50 tons of food through to Catholic Charities.

"Avanza Supermarkets is committed to serving the communities where our customers live," said Alec Covington, c.e.o. of the Minneapolis-based food distributor. "It is crucial that we all continue working together to make sure that no one goes hungry in our neighborhoods, especially during the holiday season."

In Denver, Nash FinchAvanza donated 40 tons of food, which filled two tractor trailers. It was the largest single donation ever received by Catholic Charities of Denver, and arrives at a critical time of year for charitable organizations across the nation.

Avanza has collaborated with Catholic Charities of Denver several times in the last four years. This most recent donation brings the total amount of food donated by the grocer to more than 80 tons of food for people in need in the Metro Denver area.

Meanwhile in Omaha, the company's 10-ton food donation - which also represents the largest single donation received by Catholic Charities of Omaha this year -- will feed hundreds of local families.

In addition to its corporately owned Avanza, Econofoods, Family Thrift Center, and Sun Mart banners, Nash Finch's core distribution arm serves independent retailers and military commissaries in 31 states, the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Azores and Egypt.
