Here are just a few of Food City’s major community commitments:
Community Support Card
Food City’s Community Support Card is a great way to generate funds for your
organization. Here's how it works:
- Your organization purchases the Community Support Card and receives a 6% discount.
The Community Support Card offers your supporters a choice where to shop, as it
is accepted at all Food City, Bashas’ and AJ's stores.
- and receives a 6% profit.
Your organization then sells the Community Support Card to supporters at face value
- Your supporters can reload their Community Support Card at Food City, Bashas',
and AJ's Fine Foods stores, and your organization will earn 6% of the reload
- Earnings from reloaded Community Support Cards will be distributed once a month.
- To get your organization enrolled, simply submit a letter with your organization's
name and address stating your interest in participating with our program, plus a
copy of the notice from the IRS stating that you are registered as a charitable
organization under IRS code section 501(c)3 to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-866-292-6407.
Charity of the Month
Customers have an opportunity to give back to a local non-profit just about
every month in a Food City store – whether it be donating food or making a donation
at the register. This kind of fundraising has garnered more than $500,000 for local
children’s hospitals and local chapters of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Juvenile
Diabetes Research Foundation and American Heart Association.
Our 2017 Charities include:
American Heart Association
Florence Crittenton Services of Arizona (Phoenix Metro)
La Frontera Arizona (Southern Arizona)
MAM Arizona (Northern Arizona)
Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center
A New Leaf Homeless Shelters
Summer Lunch Drive
Make a Wish Foundation
Childhood Hunger Drive
St Jude Children's Hospital

Banner Children’s (Phoenix Metro)
U of A Steele Children's Research Center (Southern)
Northern Arizona Medical Centers (Northern)
Soliciting on Food City Property
Out of respect for our customers, Food City does not allow soliciting on our store properties. Customers tell us they would prefer not to be solicited as they enter or exit our stores, and we respect that. Moreover, Food City has a renowned Charity of the Month program (mentioned earlier on this page) that gives customers at all Food City locations the opportunity, via donations at the cash register, to support one major community charity nearly every month of the year. Naturally, we want to be sure we’re giving each month’s designated charity the full spotlight.
While we offer no on-site solicitation opportunities other than our Charity of the Month program, we do have a Community Support Card program that is open to any charitable organization that is registered with the IRS under code section 501(c)3. For details, scroll to the top of this page.
Food City Volunteers
Our Food City members and retirees, along with their families and friends, have volunteered countless hours to community-based projects. Our volunteers have helped children learn to read, assembled back-to-school tool kits for United Way, sorted toys for Salvation Army, served meals to the hungry, and more. If your non-profit organization could use some volunteer help, submit an e-mail to: email@example.com
