King Soopers helps The Salvation Army provide Thousands of Thanksgiving Meals
Working together to help those in need
DENVER, CO (Nov. 23, 2022) – Thanksgiving meal preparations are underway at The Salvation Army. King Soopers donated and delivered enough food to provide 7,000 traditional Thanksgiving meals last Friday. And today, the nutritious food is being prepared for our neighbors in need.
The donated food was delivered to The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center at 2136 Champa Street in Denver. Come Thanksgiving day, The Salvation Army will serve the nutritious meals to families in shelters, motel shelters, and Safe Outdoors Spaces.
The meals will be prepared with the help of Chef Tajahi Cooke of Miss Betty’s Cooking and their team of Madsgiving partners.
The donation of food is part of King Soopers' ‘Zero Hunger | Zero Waste’ mission.
“It is our greatest pleasure to partner with The Salvation Army and support the incredible work this organization does to help feed people in the place we call home,” says Jessica Trowbridge of King Soopers. This meal is a 45+ year Thanksgiving tradition for us, and we are pleased to once again work alongside The Salvation Army to help those seeking assistance this holiday season.”
