Do you know a local Food Bank, a local emergency hunger relief organization or a local non-profit that would like to participate in the Give Back Bag or Giving Tag Program? Please review the guidelines and instructions below to submit the organization for approval. If approved, your organization will be placed on a list for local store leadership to consider in future months.
Only local Food Banks or local emergency hunger relief organizations can benefit from the Give Back Bag Program. If you submit a local emergency hunger relief organization or a local Food Bank, and it is accepted, it will be added to the list to be selected to benefit in the program. Approved organizations focused on education, civic, health & wellness, hunger relief or military/veterans can benefit from the Giving Tag Program.
Please note: Approval does not guarantee selection at the store level. If chosen, your organization will be notified directly 30 days in advance. Once approved, however, your organization can raise funds at any time throughout the year through the Giving Tag Program - click here to learn more.
