We received a holiday gift from Safeway/Albertson’s Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Fund
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.
This round of Nourishing Neighbors grant focuses on the needs of communities, which have been particularly hard hit as COVID-19 takes a 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.
