We work hand in hand with local nonprofit organizations to serve people in your neighborhood.
In September, we're donating $2 million toward creating healthier futures for kids. Because it's so important to give kids the opportunity for a healthy start in life, our donation goes toward supporting local programs fighting childhood obesity in your neighborhood. These programs offer ways to help families coping with childhood obesity. They also provide education and awareness.
We're proud to support healthier children and healthier neighborhoods. Organizations with Childhood Obesity Programs Being Supported by The Safeway Foundation

You can create healthier futures too! There are lots of easy ways to help:
- Give kids a nutritious breakfast every day.
- Plan at least one family meal a day. You'll reinforce good eating habits and build stronger relationships.
- Give kids healthy options and let them pick.
- Let kids help with the cooking. They're more likely to taste what they've helped prepare.
- Introduce new vegetables more than once. Sometimes it takes a few tries.
