Feed More FamiliesTM
We launched our new pledge to Feed More FamiliesTM by donating one billion pounds of food to community based charities by 2028.
Feed More FamiliesTM activities will include regular awareness and fundraising campaigns for food banks and food recovery agencies, and a sustained effort to partner all stores in the Loblaw network that sell food with a local food charity that can put good food to use, before it becomes waste.
President's Choice Children's CharityTM
President’s Choice Children’s CharityTM (PCCC) has become Canada’s largest non-government provider of in-school hunger and nutrition programs in Canada, reaching children wherever they learn. Kids who participate in these programs at school, after school, and all summer long benefit from regular meals, snacks and food education.
In 2018, Loblaw committed to raise and donate $150 million by 2027, to support PCCC’s effort to address childhood hunger and improve food skills. Since making this commitment, we have activated our network of stores, vendors, colleagues and customers to contribute more than $89 million.

Disaster and humanitarian response
When a disaster strikes, we do what is right forour communities. Our colleagues and employees step up to mobilize support and fund relief programs for organizations in need. We are a Canadian Red Cross (CRC) Disaster Alliance Partner which means we quickly mobilize products and fundraising to resource Red Cross teams providing vital humanitarian assistance following health and weather emergencies.
Support for Ukraine
Soon after Russia invaded Ukraine, we established a quick flow of funds to the Canadian Red Cross’ Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal and to other relief efforts.
We also partnered with the Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance, and established a tailored package of support for Ukrainians arriving in Canada providing access to food, wellness, apparel, mobile technology and financial products from across our portfolio of stores and services.
