United Supermarkets & Kellanova join forces to donate $20,000 to Lubbock Impact

LUBBOCK, Texas — On Thursday, United Supermarkets and Kellanova joined forces to donate $20,000 to non-profit organization Lubbock Impact.

Part of the Albertsons Companies Foundation’s Feed the Love campaign, this donation will go to support Lubbock Impact’s hunger initiatives that help hundreds of people across the South Plains each day. Kellanova, maker of snacks like Pop-Tarts®, Pringles®, Rice Krispies Treats®, and more, has partnered with Albertsons Companies and its subsidiaries on the Feed the Love campaign for four consecutive years.

“With 34 million people in America not knowing where their next meal will come from, the need to help feed and fulfill continues,” said Meigan Goodwin, customer team lead – Albertsons, Kellanova. “Through our Kellanova Better Days Promise, we’re committed to feeding people in need, and we’re proud to partner with United Supermarkets to support those facing hunger in our communities.”

Established in 2007, Lubbock Impact works to empower people with enrichment programs and resources to meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. From hunger programs to clothing closets to cost-free healthcare options, the organization works to provide hope and the tools to break the cycle of poverty and build a stronger future for those in need.

“We are blessed to help our community through this amazing partnership with Kellanova,” said Abie Rampy, director of public relations for United Supermarkets. “The work that Lubbock Impact does for this community is so important, and we hope these funds will bolster their ability to make a positive impact on the hundreds of people in our community who come through their doors.”

“As we strive to use our resources to Love on Lubbock and serve the working poor, we are abundantly grateful that The United Family continues to come alongside us as we strive to alleviate poverty in our community,” said Becky Robertson, executive director of Lubbock Impact. “Our community partners help us carry out our mission of bringing hope, empowerment and healing to the working poor of Lubbock. We’re thankful for a shared vision and immense support.”
