Unilever to donate up to $25,000 to Food for Families

June 10, 2011 |

Shoppers who buy certain Unilever products at Raley’s, Bel Air and Nob Hill Foods stores through Tuesday will be supporting a donation to the Raley’s Food for Families program.

Unilever will donate 25 cents for every participating food and personal care product purchased at these stores, up to $25,000 to the charity.

“Unilever is proud to be partnering with Raley’s to help local food banks within the communities we jointly serve,” Bill McGrath, Unilever west division director, said in a news release. “We know that food banks’ needs remain high during the summer but that this season isn’t top of mind for most people to make personal donations, so we specifically developed this program to help meet the critical need at this time of year.”

The following products qualify for the donation: Skippy Peanut Butter (15-16.3 oz.); Ragú Pasta Sauce (1 lb.-1 lb. 8 oz.); Wish-Bone Salad Dressing (16 oz.); Best Foods Mayonnaise (22 oz.); Lipton Tea (20 count); Breyers products (1.5 qt.); Klondike Ice Cream Bars (6 count); Bertolli Frozen Meals; Magnum Ice Cream Bars (3-pack); I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spread (15 oz.); Brummel & Brown Spread (15 oz.); Promise Spread (15 oz.); Dove Body Wash (24 oz.); Dove Shampoo (12 oz.); Dove Beauty Bar (6-pack); AXE Body Wash (12 oz.); and AXE Deodorant Body spray (4 oz.).

The Food For Families program has raised more than $25 million and 15 million pounds of food through vendor partnerships, its holiday bag campaign and customer donations at checkstands. Raley’s absorbs all administrative fees to ensure that 100 percent of donations go to local food banks.

“During the summer months, the inventory from holiday food drives begins to dwindle and hunger continues to be a year-round problem in our community,” John Healey, president/CEO of California Emergency Foodlink, said in the news release. “Raley’s Food for Families program provides overwhelming support to the more than 6 million people living in California who need food assistance.”

In Yolo County, Raley’s is at 367 W. Main St. and Bel Air is at 1885 Gibson Road, both in Woodland.

Raley’s is partnered with 74 food banks throughout Northern California and Nevada. To see where donations go in your local store, visit www.foodforfamilies.org.
