Food 4 Less and Foods Co customers and associates can support after-school programs in their local schools through the supermarket chain's nonprofit arm, The Food 4 Less/Foods Co Fund, by donating their spare change in collection canisters located at the checkstands in their neighborhood Food 4 Less stores in Southern California, southern Nevada and greater Chicago, and Foods Co supermarkets in Central and Northern California. The after-school program fund-raising campaign will run from August 18 through November 9, 2013.

"The support of after-school programs is an important cause to Food 4 Less, Foods Co and our customers," said Bryan Kaltenbach, president of Food 4 Less/Foods Co.
