The 2018 campaign, which engaged communities to support their most vulnerable citizens, raised enough to provide 22 million breakfasts for kids in the 2,300+ communities in which Albertsons Companies operates.
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is excited to be selected as a charity partner for Albertsons Companies Foundation to receive donations from the annual Hunger Is campaign to eradicate childhood hunger.
