Donate to your store’s Hunger Relief Partner today at the register. Just let your cashier know that you’d like to make a donation. Thanks for helping to eradicate hunger in our shared communities!

As part of our ongoing commitment to our communities, every New Seasons Market partners with a local organization that fights hunger. Customers can make a donation at the register anytime they shop with us, to organizations ranging in scope from food pantries to soup kitchens to home garden programs for food insecure families. Each year we hold a Hunger Match weekend event where we match the first $1,000 donated at each of our stores. In 2017 alone, New Seasons Market’s matching funds and customer donations raised over $165,000 for our hunger relief partners! Here are just a few of the organizations we partner with – see a full list with your store’s hunger relief partner below!

Hunger Relief Sponsors
Meals on Wheels People

Since 1970, Meals on Wheels People has provided a nutritional and social lifeline for seniors through 31 meal sites in Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties and Meals on Wheels delivery to homebound seniors. New Seasons Market has a special fondness for this organization; each of our stores has either a Meals on Wheels route or serves in one of the non-profit’s neighborhood centers. Every year during the five days before Thanksgiving, we host the Donate Dinner program, encouraging customers to donate to Meals on Wheels People right at the register—ensuring that seniors in our community don’t experience hunger.

Oregon Food Bank West

Part of the regional food bank network of the Oregon Food Bank, this division serves the non-profit’s mission of eliminating hunger and its root causes—because no one should be hungry. Taking a holistic approach to ending hunger, our Cedar Hills store helps OFB West bring the community together to provide food, education and hope to neighbors in need.

Share

Vancouver, Washington’s Share envisions a community without hunger. Its mission is to lead the hungry and homeless to self-sufficiency by providing food, shelter, housing, education, advocacy and compassion through the strength of the Vancouver community. Our Fisher’s Landing store staff volunteers at Share’s centers and have acted as guest chefs at fundraisers.​
