United Supermarkets and Junior League host Food 2 Kids Program

Posted: Updated:

From United Supermarkets:

United is teaming up with the Junior League of Lubbock for the fifth year in a row to host Junior League's annual Food 2 Kids Pop-Tarts® drive May 1-15. The Food 2 Kids program provides 1,500 sacks of food every Friday to children who are at risk for suffering from hunger during the weekend.

"United is committed to fighting hunger in our community and encourages all guests to participate in this year's drive," said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for United Supermarkets, LLC. "With 21 of the 35 elementary schools in Lubbock having at least 75 percent of students qualify for free or reduced lunches, we know these efforts help our family and friends in Lubbock who suffer from hunger."

Guests can purchase boxes of toaster pastries at any of Lubbock's nine United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos stores, and donate them by placing them in the Food 2 Kids barrels at the front of each store. Guests can also add a cash donation to their grocery purchase during checkout.
