Stater Bros. Charities presented Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County (CAPSBC) Food Bank with a check for $20,000 on July 17, 2012. The donation was part of Stater Bros. Charities’ Harvesting Hope campaign to help local families facing hunger in our communities. Stater Bros. has been a generous benefactor to the CAPSBC Food Bank since 1988. They have provided 1,801,461 pounds of food support to CAPSBC in 2011 and 951,526 pounds so far for 2012. Their foundation also has provided cash support to CAPSBC totaling $75,000.

“We are so grateful to Stater Bros. Charities for their ongoing support of the CAPSBC Food Bank. In these difficult times, donations are so important to helping those in need in our communities. CAPSBC Food Bank serves over 30,000 individuals throughout the county with food assistance every month. On behalf of the children, families, seniors, veterans, disabled and unemployed persons who need this assistance, we are very Thankful,” stated CAPSBC CEO, Patricia L. Nickols. Every week, Stater Bros. gives bread, yogurt, milk, meats and other items which are then distributed through CAPSBC’s food network. These donations are then redistributed through a massive food network with the assistance of countless volunteers. The food distribution network supports 166 agencies, including Catholic Charities of San Bernardino & Riverside County, Salvation Army, Lighthouse for the Blind, the ROCK church, Set Free Christian Fellowship, Desert Manna Ministries, St. Paul A.M.E., Boy’s & Girl’s Club, local schools, community & senior centers, domestic violence shelters and countless other faith-based organizations.

Since 1936, Stater Bros. Markets has been a pillar of support in the local community. Last year alone, Stater Bros. contributed more than $13 million to local non-profit organizations in communities throughout Southern California. With an emphasis on programs that benefit hunger relief, children's health and wellbeing, education for both youth and adults, elderly care and services and help for our Nation's Veterans, Stater Bros. Charities will be able to combat some of the most critical needs in the surrounding area.
