Entries in Feeding America (2)
One of CB2’s core values is to work with local organizations that make a difference in our neighborhoods—specifically nonprofit groups that provide food and shelter to those in need.
Our annual “can do” food drive is a Thanksgiving-time tradition that warms our hearts—and as food banks have been especially busy these past few years, they appreciate donations more than ever.
November 10th-28th, all in-store customers are welcome to bring in 7 non-perishable items and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. New this year, on-line customers are welcome to donate $10. at checkout and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. For details regarding both opportunities, see the fine print* below.
We love sharing the thrill of giving by filling our store windows with donations. A very special Thank You! to Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Campbell’s for their sponsorships to get us started in Lincoln Park, Soho and Eastside New York—their generous donations will go to Lakeview Pantry and City Harvest.
Watch all the collections grow through Thanksgiving weekend and remember that food stuffs collected will go directly to the food banks, listed below, which are local partners with our 10 CB2 stores.
