IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Smith’s Food & Drug is again offering a convenient way to reach out and help others during the holiday season with its Bringing Hope To the Table donation drive.
From now until December 31, you may add a $1, $5 or $10 donation to your grocery orders.
Smith's said 100 percent of the contribution will then be converted into Smith’s gift cards for Idaho Food Bank to then purchase meat, grocery items, dairy or other needed items at cost.
In 2016, enough food was contributed this way to create 153,817 meals through food bank and pantry networks in Idaho.
“No family in our community should ever go hungry, and no food in the stores we operate should ever go to waste,” said Aubriana Martindale, division corporate affairs manager for Smith’s.
The Bringing Hope To the Table donation drive for Idaho Food Bank ties into Smith’s newly launched Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative, an effort aimed at ending hunger in the communities Smith’s calls home and eliminating waste across the company by 2025.
