Southern Family Market food drive
Southern Family Markets launches its Second Annual "Family to Family" Food Drive to benefit local food banks.
Southern Family Markets announced that they will launch their "Family to Family" holiday food drive campaign. The "Family to Family" food drive focuses local attention on the severe problems of domestic hunger and its impact on families and children. It also helps build up depleted reserves at local food banks immediately after the holidays.
We know that our customers are living a busy lifestyle balancing family and work, time and money. Thanks to the simplicity of the "Family to Family" campaign, during the holidays, it will be easy for customers to stop by their local Southern Family Markets supermarket, purchase a $5 grocery bag full of food and drop the bag in the bin located at the front of the store. Local food banks will then pick them up and deliver your donations to local families in the community.
This program is a holiday program that began Nov. 12 and continues through Dec. 30. Customers can make a difference this holiday season by giving from their family to a family in need.
Based in Birmingham, Southern Family Markets currently operates 56 supermarkets in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
