History

A True Community Partnership

Raley’s Food For Families program was founded in 1986 by Joyce Raley Teel and former Raley’s president Chuck Collings. What began as a simple holiday food drive quickly grew to a year-round effort to fight hunger. Operating as a true community partnership, Food For Families today raises millions of dollars annually through food drives, store donation boxes, mobile and online giving, support from vendors, and cash and product donations.

In addition, all Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods, and Food Source stores donate unsellable grocery and food products to Food For Families partner food banks. Donated items are unable to be sold for a variety of reasons but are still perfectly safe to be consumed. By getting these products into the hands of those who need them, our Food For Families food rescue program not only diverts usable food from unnecessarily entering the waste stream, it’s also an important source of daily donations for hundreds of food banks across our region.
