Special School Program Announcement from The GIANT Company 

Dear Principal,

I am pleased to share The GIANT Company is once again partnering with our school district’s food service organization to help support our students facing food insecurity. We wanted to share this with you in advance to ask you to start thinking about ways you can communicate this message to your school and greater community to encourage participation in this effort.

The initiative has been extended an extra month to allow schools to earn more needed funds. From January 1 through March 31, everyone who shops at GIANT, MARTIN’S and GIANT Heirloom Market stores will be invited to “round up” at the register and donate the round-up amount of their bill to support Feeding School Kids. Customers can also give by converting their CHOICE Rewards Points to donations in the GIANT app or purchasing a reusable bag.

Following our return to school after the winter holidays, we ask our school community to help spread the word of the Feeding School Kids initiative to ensure its success.  Our goal is to support the children in our district who need the most help accessing nutritious meals and snacks. From backpacks with weekend food, to clearing lunch debt, to building a community pantry in our schools, the funds will be provided directly to our district’s food organization for use, at our discretion, to address food insecurity in our school community.

Our district looks forward to partnering with The GIANT Company to fight childhood hunger.  Please join me in supporting and advocating for this initiative to help ensure no child in our district experiences hunger at school or at home.

I wish you, and your entire school community, a safe and happy holiday season!

Warm wishes,
