United Supermarkets to Host Holiday Food Drives
United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos United stores in the Lubbock, Abilene and Amarillo areas are hosting food drives through Dec. 10, with proceeds benefitting local food banks. Food and monetary donations are being accepted during this community-wide effort, which will provide hunger relief for families in local communities during the holiday season.
“A new study released by Feeding America finds that many Americans chronically depend on food pantries and other charitable food services to feed themselves and their families,” said Chris James, regional VP of United Supermarkets, LLC. “Our ongoing partnership with local food banks is a natural extension of our company’s mission.”
During the drive, store guests may drop their donations of nonperishable food at any participating United Supermarkets, Market Street or Amigos United location, or simply add a cash donation of at least $1 to their purchase during checkout.
Needed items include canned products, such as meat, tuna, soup, fruit, juice and vegetables, and dry products, such as rice, macaroni and cheese, instant potatoes, cereal, and peanut butter.
Lubbock, Texas-based United Supermarkets operates 51 stores under four distinct formats: United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos United and United Express.
