Making A Difference
It feels good to know that - together - we're helping folks right here in our communities. With your support, and the Making a difference... support of Raley's employees and business partners, Food For Families has raised more than $27 million and donated more than 17 million pounds of dry groceries to food banks in our communities since the program began as a holiday food drive in 1986.

Today, food banks throughout Northern California and Nevada benefit from this non-profit program. Partnerships with The Sacramento Bee, the Modesto Bee and the San Francisco Chronicle also help to support Food For Families through newspaper sales in Raley's stores.
Food For Families helps feed hundreds of thousands of hungry families year-round. Raley's Co-Chairman and Owner, Joyce Raley Teel, and CEO emeritus, Charles Collings, founded the program.

Raley's absorbs all administrative costs of the program with 100 percent of every donation going directly to help feed the hungry. All donated food is distributed by local food banks. That means that the donations you make stay in your community. Together, we're making a difference. Thank you.
