The United Family runs on the heart of servant. We have long said that we are servants in the people business. It just happens that groceries are the vehicle through which we serve. That’s why donating money to important local causes, getting involved in the fight against hunger and empowering our UCrew and A-Teams to volunteer is so important. We deeply feel our responsibility to serve the communities who support our company and we’re committed to continuing to supporting them, for generations to come.
We’re doing our part to save the planet one green decision at a time. From instituting energy efficient policies, encouraging community-wide recycling and abiding by EPA guidelines to make our operation clean, we’re taking measures to keep our planet healthy and strong for generations to come.
From our wide selection of organic foods, cage-free eggs and locally-sourced goods, our stores have everything you need to fill your basket mindfully.

Reducing our footprint is a top priority for The United Family, leading to green initiatives like reducing consumption of single-use plastics, switching to energy efficient lighting, reducing waste and hosting recycling receptacles in local communities. Plus, our logistics team makes it their mission to only put fully stocked trucks on the road.
