Solicitation Requests

While it is our goal to help as many organizations as possible, we must also be mindful to the needs of our customers that do not want to be solicited on a regular basis while they are at our stores to purchase groceries.

The following are our guidelines for non-profit group solicitations at our stores:

  • Requests to solicit can be made by clicking here (Requests are accepted a maximum of 12 weeks in advance)
  • Stores are limited to 2 group solicitation events per month.
  • Groups are permitted to a maximum of 1 event every 6 months, based on calendar availability.
  • Groups/Organizations must be a non-profit, and must support the local store's region – third party fundraising/collection groups are not approved.
  • Groups/Organizations must abide by the Solicitation Code of Conduct

Guidelines are subject to change.
