Creating 1,500 unique acts of support

Sobeys Inc. has a history of giving back, and in these challenging times, our local communities need us more than ever. We’re committed to helping those most in need with our Community Action Fund, supporting communities from coast to coast. By partnering with all of our Grocery and Lawtons retail locations, in communities across Canada, we’re creating 1,500 unique acts of support, a commitment equaling millions of dollars, and, addressing the emergency needs facing frontline community organizations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our businesses are engrained in the fabric of our communities, and we’ve empowered our wide and generous network of stores to identify the specific needs in their communities. With the unprecedented situation constantly shifting, we know that each and every community will be in need of unique support. In the weeks and months to come, we will continue to work with community groups across the country to offer support to neighbours in need in their time of crisis.

Supporting our local food banks and food networks

We are working directly with food banks, community organizations, provincial bodies and municipalities across the country to help feed Canadian families during this unprecedented time. Our tailored support to food banks and meal programs includes financial support, donated gift cards, thousands of prepackaged hampers and thousands of cases of pantry essentials. Every day, our Sobeys Inc. family is responding to donation requests across the country. We’ll continue to do everything we can. Sobeys and our family of brands are incredibly inspired by our community partners and their unwavering commitment to helping those who need assistance. Thank you to the frontline employees and volunteers in community food networks across the country for their extraordinary efforts to make healthy and affordable food possible.
