The FreshCo team has a long history of giving back and now our local communities need us more than ever. That's why we created the Community Action Fund. In the early days of the pandemic, our passionate network of stores and teammates connected with their local communities to create localized solutions that helped address their most urgent needs. We trust that our store teams know their communities best; that’s how the Community Action Fund was able to direct food and funds to make an immediate, meaningful difference. We have seen various organizations benefit from the fund including: food banks, seniors centres, school lunch programs, youth and homeless drop-in centres, hospitals, and many more.
FreshCo is incredibly inspired by our community partners and their commitment to helping those who need assistance. Thank you to the frontline employees and volunteers in community food networks across the country for their extraordinary efforts to make healthy and affordable food possible.
