First Five Years and Beyond (FFYB) and Rainier Valley Corps (RVC are excited to announce that the organizations have received a grant from their Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Fund, what a way to kick off the new year!
The grant will help us ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community can fight against hunger especially as COVID-19 continues to take a human, employment, and economic toll.
We are committed to ensuring that the families we serve have the food they need during this difficult time. We will use the grant to provide parents with a monthly Safeway voucher and/or gift cards to support their family in accessing nutritious foods while they continue to educate and support online/distance learning for their preschool and school-aged children.
Safeway/Albertson’s Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief The initiative was launched with a $53 million company donation in 2020. Since then, generous customers have donated an additional $57 million at the register. We thank all donations big and small.
We graciously thank Safeway/Albertson’s Nourishing Neighbors Foundation for providing FFYB with the opportunity to help local families of preschool and school-aged children “keep nutritious food on the table” during these turbulent times! #Nourishingneighbors.
