Beginning on Nov. 26 until Dec. 2, all of the money raised will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, GLSEN Maryland Chapter, Latino Student Fund and US Dream Academy. An additional $30,000 will be divided evenly among the Manna Food Center and Giant’s five Feeding America area food bank partners: Capital Area Food Bank, Maryland Food Bank, Food Bank of Delaware, Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank and Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

“The beneficiaries of our 2021 #GivingTuesday round-up campaign are working on the frontlines to support young people in innovative and important ways,” said Ira Kress, President of Giant Food. “Our annual #GivingTuesday campaign is always an opportunity to extend our commitment to be a better neighbor, and this year is no different as we also deepen support for our food bank partners at this critical time.”
