Smith’s Food & Drug Stores and Three Square Food Bank wanted to make sure the valley’s most vulnerable residents experience the joys of the holiday season. This month Smith’s Southern Nevada grocery stores donated a total 2,500 pumpkin pies to Three Square Food Bank.
These pies were distributed to Three Square’s network of community partners, who are able to reach families on the front lines of hunger.
“The holidays are a time for sharing food and enjoying the fruits of the season. We want to help spread holiday cheer by topping off their meal with pumpkin pie,” said Marsha Gilford, vice president of public affairs for Smith’s.
Smith’s is a division of the Kroger Co., one of the nation’s largest grocery retailers, operates 140 stores in seven western states including 7 in northern Nevada and 37 in southern Nevada. Smith’s charitable giving, in partnership with more than 5,000 Nevada associates, generous customers and suppliers totaled $4.2 million in cash and food products to nonprofit organizations in 2015.
