If you visited an Albertsons store over the past month or so, you were most likely asked about donating to Turkey Bucks. Stores in the Intermountain Division were able to choose food banks within their respective areas and donations were used to provide meals to local families in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming and Utah.

This year, nearly $895,000 was donated to Turkey Bucks, providing about 17,900 meals (more than we could fit in the truck) for families in need this Thanksgiving.

In Boise alone, 12 stores received enough Turkey Bucks to donate 2,832 meals to the Idaho Foodbank. That’s over 500 more Treasure Valley families than last year!

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Turkey Bucks this year. Even the smallest of donations are going a long, long way in making a difference in our communities.
