Raley’s ‘Food for Families’ program underway

By From page B8 | December 09, 2013

FAIRFIELD — People can take part in Raley’s “Food for Families” campaign by texting through Dec. 31.

Those who wish to join the campaign can contribute $10 by texting the word ENDHUNGER to 85944. Raley’s will donate a Food for Families bag of groceries to help local food banks meet the increased demand for food throughout Northern California and Nevada, a company press release said.

Raley’s will match each donation and provide a bag of groceries worth more than $20 containing such items as carrots, potatoes, green salad and whole wheat pasta.

Raley’s is partnering with MobileCause. Once donors send a text, they will have the $10 donation charged to their phone bill. Standard text data rates apply. The ENDHUNGER text option is available through major carriers, including AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, the press release said.
