Independents Day of Giving

June 2017

Independent grocers, and wholesalers across the nation join together with the National Grocers Association and ROFDA to help end hunger and raise community awareness by supporting Feeding America® and local hunger-relief organizations. Together, the independent supermarket industry can have a real impact in supporting the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization with an easy-to-execute fundraising campaign. The campaign, which enables customers to donate $1, $3 or $5 increments at the register, will run through the month of June, highlighting June 21, the first day of summer, as a “Day of Giving.”
