Convenience cares about fighting food insecurity. Our members and partners host food drives, contribute donations, and provide meals to families in need. As a major source of food for many Americans, convenience stores can play an important role in addressing food insecurity and hunger in the communities we serve.

To help address hunger and food insecurity, the NACS Foundation’s Neighborhood Nourish program will host a month-long food drive and donation program to benefit local food banks. As part of this program, the NACS Foundation will mobilize volunteers to support local groups working to address food insecurity and homelessness.
