"We are continually amazed by the generosity of our customers and associates to help the less fortunate," said Kendra Doyel, Senior Manager, Community Affairs for Ralphs/Food 4 Less. "Our fundraising efforts will have a measurable impact in the fight to end hunger in our community."

The funds raised by Ralphs and Food 4 Less, and their 375 stores – including Food 4 Less and Ralphs stores in Southern California, Food 4 Less stores in southern Nevada and the greater Chicago area, and Foods Co stores in Central and Northern California – will benefit the following Feeding America affiliated food banks:

The funds were raised through Ralphs and Food 4 Less' annual holiday "Bringing Hope to the Table" campaign that provided customers with an opportunity to donate at each checkstand from November 10, 2013 to January 31, 2014. In addition, customers shopping at Ralphs stores in Southern California were also able to make monetary donations to end hunger by purchasing "Bringing Hope to the Table" scan cards.

Ralphs and Food 4 Less' ongoing commitment to bring as much food as possible to hungry families also includes their Perishables Donations Partnership (PDP) program.
