Community Involvement

We believe it’s our responsibility to invest in our communities the same way they invest in us.

Community Responsibility

The Fresh Market believes in giving back to our communities to help make them a better place for all to live. We do this with in-kind giving and through programs with long-term focus on hunger-related causes.

We have aligned our company as a “Leadership Partner” with Feeding America®. They are the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States, with a network of 200 foodbanks that feed 40 million people at risk of hunger, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.

Each The Fresh Market store makes food donations multiple times per week to Feeding America’s partner food banks and its agencies to fight hunger in their communities.

September 1 – September 30, 2022

September is Hunger Action Month®. During this month, Feeding America® works to bring awareness of hunger issues and encourages people to take action to fight hunger insecurity. As a Leadership Partner of Feeding America, The Fresh Market® is supporting this annual campaign with a Hunger Action Month Round Up fundraiser.

100% of funds collected go to benefit Feeding America which will in turn redistribute 90% of those funds to local Feeding America member food banks that partner with The Fresh Market stores to fight food insecurity and build hunger awareness in their local communities.

Hunger Action Month is an opportunity to be a part of a month-long movement to fight hunger. Here are a few simple ways we invite our guests to participate in Hunger Action Month.

  • When making a purchase at a The Fresh Market, choose to Round Up your bill as a donation to Feeding America.
  • September 23rd is Hunger Action Day - wear orange! This is the color of hunger relief. By wearing it, let's join on behalf of the millions of people facing hunger.
  • Volunteering at your local food bank.

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