Community Involvement

We believe it’s our responsibility to invest in our communities the same way they invest in us.

Community Responsibility

The Fresh Market believes in giving back to our communities to help make them a better place for all to live. We do this with in-kind giving and through programs with long-term focus on hunger-related causes.

Feeding America®

We have aligned our company as a “Mission Partner” with Feeding America®. They are the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States, with a network of 200 foodbanks that feed 40 million people at risk of hunger, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.

Each The Fresh Market store makes food donations multiple times per week to Feeding America’s partner food banks and its agencies to fight hunger in their communities.

Hot Dogs for Hunger

COVID-19 has shed light on American’s struggle with food insecurity. With one in eight people facing hunger, The Fresh Market has partnered with the original hot dog, Feltman’s of Coney Island, to do our part and support Feeding America and its food banks during Hunger Action Month.

We invite you to visit your store’s Deli counter from 12-4 PM on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27 for our Hot Dogs for Hunger event. Pick up the perfect lunch or snack for just $2.00: a ready-to-eat, 100% natural, Feltman’s hot dog.

Together we can fight to end hunger.

Meals On A Mission & Take A Slice Out Of Hunger

The Fresh Market supports two annual fundraisers benefiting Feeding America and its network of food banks. 90% of the funds raised are redistributed back to each of our store’s local Feeding America food bank partners. These fundraisers are designed to fight food insecurity and to build hunger awareness in each of our communities where we do business.
