BOISE, Idaho, June 30, 2020 /3BL Media/ — Albertsons Companies (NYSE: ACI) announced today that 100 percent of the seafood in its celebrated waterfront BISTRO® and Open Nature® lines of Own Brands products will soon display the Responsible Choice™ logo for sustainable sourcing.
Albertsons Companies’ Denver Division partnered with The Salvation Army in Aurora, Colorado to help get food to those in need during the Coronavirus pandemic. In honor of National Salvation Army Week, The Salvation Army collaborated with the Denver Division’s Albertsons and Safeway stores, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Aurora Town Center, and the City of Aurora to host one of the largest food distribution events in Colorado where 3,000 families received boxes of food and Albertsons and Safeway gift cards.
The Puyallup Food Bank will be able to stay at the new temporary location, a former Safeway... rent-free for 6 months.
“We were at 80% capacity, 80% of the time pre-COVID, but now the need has tripled,” says Chief Executive Officer Jim Beaudoin. “We are so grateful to Safeway for allowing us to move into this vacant space.”
It is a great contribution to communities that Albertsons’ stores look to neighboring companies for temporary employees.
There is a real community spirit that has been sponsored by the Albertsons family of stores. The company made a commitment of $50 million to hunger relief across the more than 2,200 neighborhoods it serves…through its Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief campaign. This pledge came after the company already donated $3 million to its fund for neighbors affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
