Giant Food and Pharmacy - helping others
Pediatric Cancer Research

Over the past six weeks, from August 17-September 23, Giant Food raised a little over $2 million through its in-store campaign, with 100% of the proceeds going to Pediatric Cancer Research. How the in-store campaign worked was that a customer donated $5 at checkout and received a coupon book worth up to $50 as a gift. The $2 million donation from Giant will be distributed to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and the Children’s Cancer Foundation in the hope of finding a cure for pediatric cancer. Since 2005, Giant Food has now donated over $21.2 million to Pediatric Cancer Research.

Feeding America Food Banks

Giant Food is partners with the five Feeding America Food Banks within our region, which includes the Capital Area Food Bank, Maryland Food Bank, Food Bank of Delaware, Fredericksburg Food Bank and Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Every week Giant Food will send at least one truck to these Food Banks and donate hundreds of pounds of food, mainly healthy options such as fruits and vegetables. Every November, Giant Food donates 1,000 turkeys to each food bank and at the end of March they donate $1,000 hams to each Food Bank. Giant also has given monetary donations to each of these food banks. Last year alone, Giant donated over $900,000 spread out among the five food banks, with all the money going to each food bank’s children’s hunger initiatives. In just monetary donations, since 2000, Giant Food has donated over $5 million to the Capital Area Food Bank and over $3.5 million to the Maryland Food Bank. Hunger is a major charitable pillar of Giant and we are proud to continue to work closely with our food bank partners to fight against food insecurity.

Community Immunity:  When a critical portion of a community is immunized against a contagious disease, most members of the community are protected against that disease because there is little opportunity for an outbreak. Even those who are not eligible for certain vaccines—such as infants, pregnant women, or immunocompromised individuals—get some protection because the spread of contagious disease is contained. This is known as "community immunity."
