Donate Dinner provides shoppers at local grocery stores the opportunity to “donate dinner to a homebound senior” when they do their holiday shopping the five days before Thanksgiving. Last year shoppers donated $250,000!
How does it work? Volunteers greet customers and hand them a card that explains how they can “donate dinner” when they check out. Each volunteer shift is only two hours and available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Shifts are available at all New Seasons Market locations as well as a number of other independent grocers. Registration for Donate Dinner will begin this fall.
