Smith’s Food & Drug, under its parent company The Kroger Co., will be hosting a Make-A-Difference Day event at noon on Tuesday, September 18 at the new Smith’s Marketplace store located at 9710 W. Skye Canyon Park Drive in Las Vegas.
This year, Make-A-Difference Day will be held in all its grocery stores in Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Montana, Arizona, and New Mexico on Tuesday, September 18. On this day, the generous associates will have the opportunity to volunteer their valuable time while Smith’s donates the food necessary to create over 225,000 meals for hungry families in the communities they serve. Each Smith’s store will package 250 individual preplanned meal kits which Three Square Food Bank will then pickup and deliver to local families.
September is national hunger action month and September 19 also marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan. Smith’s and its parent company Kroger wanted to do something bold to celebrate this anniversary while giving back to the communities in a meaningful way by taking part in Make-A-Difference Day.
