Stretching the Grocery Budget: 20+ Years of Fare For All

At The Food Group, we value community engagement and ongoing dialogue to shape our programming. Recently, we wanted to refresh, and so we asked our Fare For All customers: How did you find us? What do you like about the program? Which sale locations do you frequent most?

Working Together Toward Change

Our annual Impact Report serves as an important organizational touchstone – a reflection on a year of community engagement and advancing food equity and justice. It tells a summarized story of where we were, what we did, and what we learned. And it charts the course for where we aim to go in realizing our vision that everyone should have access to the food they need.

Valentine’s Day Dinner: A Love Letter in Every Bite

This Valentine’s Day, let’s keep it simple, delicious and totally homemade. We’re talking juicy sirloins with onions that melt in your mouth, a rich red wine sauce that’s so good you’ll wanna lick the pan (maybe not…but we get it) and veggie sides roasted to perfection.
