Raley’s nonprofit organization Food for Families will be offering customers an easy way to donate to needy families in their communities this holiday season.

Shoppers may purchase a bag filled with nutritious groceries, worth $20, for $10 at their local Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill or Food Source stores. Bags are then donated to local food banks. Customers can also donate year-round by making a cash donation at checkstands. Raley’s absorbs all administrative costs of the program, with 100 percent of all donations going directly to the communities to feed the hungry.
