Consider Grocery Outlet for those Last Minute Holiday Food Essentials

I went out on my lunch break to do some shopping, and it seems that all of Northern Nevada is doing the same. I think half of the population is actively grocery shopping to prepare for the holidays. As you make your decision of which store to get those last minute provisions, why not consider a store where each franchise is a local, independently run family business that gives back to our community? We thought you should know about the ways that Reno Moms Blog sponsor Grocery Outlet is giving back to our community this holiday:

The Lemmon Valley Grocery Outlet Outreach:

  • Hosted a giving tree with SNACS-Sierra Nevada Academy Charter School where people can buy gifts for children in need.
  • Given discounts on turkeys to Operation Feedback Food Bank
  • Donated 20 turkeys and discounted many more for Lemmon Valley Elementary School
  • Donated money to Nancy Gomes Elementary School

The Sparks Grocery Outlet donated 10 turkeys and 2 dozen hams to the Gospel Mission to support there efforts in feeding so many over the holidays.

Carson Valley Grocery Outlet held a salvation army food drive and served as a dropping point for Toys for Tots.

Happy shopping!
