Stater Bros. Charities Donates $150,000 to 13 Southern California Food Banks

Donations will be made throughout the summer as part of the “Harvesting Hope In Our Community” Program

San Bernardino, California (Tuesday, July 01, 2014) -

During the summer months when food reserves are traditionally low, children are also out of school and not receiving meals through school food programs.  That’s why Stater Bros. Charities is stepping in to help make a difference this summer for these kids and their families by donating $150,000 to thirteen (13) local food banks and pantries.  These funds were generously donated by Stater Bros.’ customers and employees this past holiday season during the “Harvesting Hope In Our Community” program.

Throughout the year, Stater Bros. and its charitable arm Stater Bros. Charities are very committed to “Harvesting Hope” by providing cash and food to over 100 Southern California food banks.  Each year, the “Harvesting Hope In Our Community” program contributes over $6 million in cash and food donations … which provide 42 million meals … for hungry families in the communities where Stater Bros. customers and employees live and work.

“We are in the business of helping our neighbors and right now, some of our neighbors need a little bit more help than the rest.  It’s our hope that these donations will have a major impact in their lives,” said Jack H. Brown, Chairman and CEO of Stater Bros. Markets.
