"Your heart is overflowing," said Debbie Christian of the Auburn Food Bank. "The blessing that this is going to be to our budget as well as the families that we can turn around and help with it. Our prices all go up and the shelves are all bare. Those are the same problems that we face."
“It’s always good to give back and today everyone wins," Fred Meyer President Todd Kammeyer added via statement. “In addition to this donation, Fred Meyer is giving $10,000 to the store for our associates to celebrate.”
