At Sobeys, we take our commitment to “Proudly Serve Our Communities” to heart. That’s why we’re giving back to the more than 800 communities we serve across the country. This dedication to community service is closely tied to the legacy of the Sobey family and their continued commitment to philanthropic initiatives that play an important role in enhancing the lives of Canadians.
Together, we support many national initiatives that promote the well being of families and children – including health, wellness, education and scholarship programs. However, the major focus is placed on the local communities where our employees and franchisees live, work and generously give their time and talent in support of community events and causes.
Our passion for food extends beyond our stores and into the communities in which we operate. Every year we help feed the hungry by raising hundreds of thousands of dollars and donating millions of pounds of food. We donate hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to North York Harvest Food Bank, Engage with our employees to raise food and funds and donate volunteer time and support the food bank through financial and in-kind support.
The Sobey Foundation has also raised $250,000 over 5 years to support the food bank.
