Each school year, Food City’s School Bucks program provides $700,000 in contributions to more than a thousand participating area schools.
“It goes without saying that the past year has certainly been one like no other. Most of our area schools have incurred significant expenses due to COVID-19 and need additional support,” said Food City President and CEO Steven C. Smith. “We’re pleased to be distributing $700,000 in contributions at a time when they need it most.”
The 2021-2022 School Bucks program will continue through May 10, 2022. For every $1 customers spend using their Food City ValuCard, they will receive one School Buck point. To have their points credited to the school of their choice, customers should visit foodcity.com/schoobucks to link the Food City ValuCard to the preferred school.
Food City has once again pledged $700,000 for the current school year. School allocations are based upon the percentage of customer purchases assigned to each school, and schools can monitor their progress online at foodcity.com.
“Food City is committed to supporting the education of our youth,” said Smith. “Since the program’s inception, we’ve awarded over $20,000,000 in much-needed educational equipment and tools to more than 1,000 participating area schools.”
