September 15 – City of Oakley 2017 Golf Tournament – Benefiting: The Friends of Oakley – A Community Foundation
Grocery Outlet’s past ‘Independence from Hunger’ efforts have collected more than $2.2 million to date across the country, helping advance the company’s greater goal of touching lives for the better. Each local Grocery Outlet store is independently owned and operated by families who are committed to giving back to the local community.
“As our business grows so does our commitment to continue supporting the invaluable work of food agencies who are the essential benefactors of many families facing food insecurity,” said Grocery Outlet Inc. Co-CEO MacGregor Read. “In 2016, we raised over half a million dollars. This year, we want to challenge ourselves and our community of clients, employees and partners to make an even bigger impact by helping reach a million dollars.”
July is traditionally a time when food agencies experience the greatest need to serve children who are out of school during the summer. In fact, 42.2 million Americans live in food insecure households, which include 13.1 million children (USDA, Household Food Security in the United States in 2015)
