UNFI and SUPERVALU are becoming one. The merger builds on our industry leading assortment of products, expertise and forward-focused approach. We'll continue to deliver the right food solutions to all our customers and we're excited about our future together.
In general, SUPERVALU’s giving decisions are focused on three areas where we believe we can make the greatest impact:
We support organizations providing comprehensive hunger relief programming or food banks seeking capacity-building operating funds. Please note: food donations are made directly to Feeding America's Fresh Rescue program for local distribution.
Dietary Health and Nutrition
We fund organizations promoting nutrition education and maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet.
SUPERVALU is committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable operations and will support local sustainability efforts.
SUPERVALU will generally not support:
Organizations located outside the markets we serve
Third-party requests on behalf of another organization
Fees for conferences, seminars or travel
Advertising requests (including printed programs)
Family or individual emergency relief
Travel and/or academic research
Fees for participation in athletic or other competitive programs
Fraternal or labor organizations
Parties, ceremonies or memorials
Lobbying or political initiatives
Religious organizations (for religious programs)
Organizations (or specific programs) that receive more than 30% of their funding from the United Way
School field trips
Workforce readiness programs

Applying organizations must have been granted 501(c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service. Special consideration is given to organizations with which SUPERVALU employees are actively involved, provided the organization's main mission falls within the general focus areas above.
The request must:
include the organization's federal 501(c)(3) designation letter (charities with 501(c) designations other than (3) are not eligible for support)
Our donation request process is now entirely online. Due to the amount of requests we receive, regrettably printed material, faxes and e-mailed donation requests will not be reviewed; we are also unable to respond to exploratory inquiries.
