Tis the season of giving! We are so excited to announce an early holiday gift from Albertson’s & Von’s Foundation in the form of a $100,000 grant!
The $100,000 grant was awarded to NHF to aid our Community Initiatives team in their efforts to address food insecurity and access in under-resourced communities. Funding will be made available in 2021 and will help us reach even more vulnerable communities in the fight against hunger.
This round of Nourishing Neighbors grants focuses on the needs of marginalized communities, which have been particularly hard hit. Roughly 86 percent of Latino households with children and 66 percent of Black households with children reported serious financial problems during the pandemic. Across the board, the numbers are staggering.
Albertson’s & Von’s Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Initiative was launched with a $53 million company donation earlier this year. Since then, generous customers have donated an additional $57 million at the register.
Thanks to Albertson’s and Vons Foundation for making our holiday season a little brighter! Follow us on social media @nhfcommunity to see how we reach more families in 2021!
