Annual food drive planned at Carson City Grocery Outlet

Carson City’s Grocery Outlet is collecting food through its 7th Annual Independence From Hunger Food Drive to benefit hungry families.

Food is collected through July, traditionally a time when food agencies experience the greatest need to serve children who are out of school during the summer.

More than 270 Grocery Outlet stores throughout the country will be collecting food and cash donations in store and online. All contributions go to the local food agency each store is partnering with.

To help, give $5 at checkout and receive $5 coupon good for a future purchase of $25 or more. Customers also can pick up food marked as “high-need” or a pre-made bags filled with an assortment of groceries selected by the local food agency. Purchase these items and then place them in a collection bin at the front of the store.

Also, donations can be made online at GroceryOutlet.com/Donate.
