Food City to award $800,000 to local schools
Food City has pledged $800,000 in contributions for the upcoming school year.
With Food City’s School Bucks Challenge, it’s easy to earn reward points. For every $1 a customer spends using a Food City ValuCard, one point is earned.
“Our Food City School Bucks Program has provided much-needed support for thousands of schools throughout our market area and our School Bucks Challenge makes points collection easy and efficient,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.
The 2023-2024 School Bucks Challenge began Sept. 6, 2023 and continues through May 7, 2024. To ensure points credit to the school of choice, simply go online to https://www.foodcity.com/schoolbucks to link a Food City ValuCard to a preferred school.
Food City has pledged $800,000 for the upcoming school year. School allocations are based upon the percentage of customer purchases assigned to each school. Schools can monitor their progress biannually online at foodcity.com.
“Food City is committed to supporting the education of our youth,” said Smith. “Since the program’s inception, we’ve awarded over $22,100,000 in much-needed educational equipment and tools to more than a thousand participating area schools.”
