KGW partners with Safeway and Albertsons in latest 'Nourishing Neighbors' food drive

Funds will support organizations in providing meals to school children, seniors, and others that are impacted by COVID-19.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The latest partnership formed by KGW, Safeway, and Albertsons helps feed school kids, seniors, and families all across the region who have felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the past few months.

With direct grants from the foundation, plus donations made at the register, the hope is to assist the people who need it to get back on their feet during this challenging time.

"A lot of the people that are coming have just never asked for help before.  They're saying, 'We were giving to Food for Lane County just a month ago, and now we're here asking for help'", says Dawn Marie Woodard from FOOD for Lane County, Oregon's second largest regional food back.
