Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Give Back Bag Program?
The Give Back Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their community and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each purchase goes to a local Food Bank or local emergency hunger relief organization that is selected to benefit each month at each store location.
How are beneficiaries selected each month?
Every month, leadership at each store location chooses a local Food Bank or local emergency hunger relief organization to be the default beneficiary from the Give Back Bag Program. This organization’s name is posted on the reusable bag rack during the benefiting month. We encourage you to go into your selected store location(s) and introduce yourself to the store manager to see how you can work together to promote your benefiting month!
If we have been selected as a monthly beneficiary, do shoppers need to use the Giving Tag attached to the bag to send the $1 donation to us?
No. If you have been selected as the monthly beneficiary at a particular store location, the $1 donation will automatically go to you upon purchase. There is no need to use the Giving Tag attached to the bag to send the $1 donation to your organization. The Giving Tag is only to redirect the $1 donation to a different non-profit, other than the local Food Bank or local emergency hunger relief organization selected to benefit for the month.
