Community Involvement

At The Fresh Market we believe it’s our responsibility to invest in our communities the same way they invest in us.

Community Involvement

All of our stores provide regular donations to local food banks. In 2014, our stores donated more than $17.8 million worth of food. In 2015, that number surpassed $20.3 million.

Charitable Donations

We are committed to being an active part of the communities where we do business and our employees enthusiastically support organizations in their local communities. For that reason, nonprofit organizations requesting a donation for a charity fundraiser or for participation in a community event are asked to please contact your local store's management directly by phone or in person. Should you need it, a store list, including addresses, phone numbers, and store managers' names, can be found at our locations page.

How to Make a Request

1Gather your information

Provide the store manager with a written request on the nonprofit organization's letterhead, including a valid tax ID number and details regarding the request.

2Contact Your Store

Visit your local store in person with the written request at least two weeks before the date the donation is needed.

3Request in Review

While our stores do their best to accommodate each group's request, please understand that we receive many requests and may not be able to fulfill all of them.
