The Fresh Market Launches Meals On A Mission Fundraiser

Boca Raton, FL – As a national mission partner of Feeding America®, fresh-focused specialty grocer The Fresh Market is launching “Meals on a Mission”, a month long fundraising campaign in all 161 of The Fresh Market locations. Every dollar donated helps provide at least 10 meals* to people in need.

WHEN: The Fresh Market’s Meals on a Mission fundraiser will take place during the month of May through three components:

  • Meals on a Mission Fund Drive: From May 1st to 31st, guests will have the chance to round up their total at the register to the nearest dollar, or to donate another dollar amount. All proceeds from the fund drive will go to Feeding America.
  • Meals on a Mission Cupcakes for Mom: On Saturday, May 11th from 12:00 to 4:00 pm —just in time for Mother’s Day— guests can purchase and decorate a $3.00 gourmet cupcake for mom. A dollar from each gourmet cupcake purchase will go to Feeding America.

WHY: According to Feeding America, one in eight Americans struggle with hunger, which equates to 40 million people in the United States and includes more than 12 million children. The Fresh Market not only makes ongoing weekly food donations to local Feeding America food banks and food agencies, but as a mission partner, is also committed to raising funds for Feeding America to fight food insecurity and to help raise hunger awareness. Ninety-percent of the total funds donated to Feeding America from The Fresh Market’s Meals on Mission fundraiser will be distributed locally where The Fresh Market operates, so the monies directly benefit people in each store’s community.

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
