Food City donates $100,000 to 95 area schools

Posted: Updated:

Food City officials presented $100,000 to 95 participating Chattanooga/North Georgia area schools as a result of their 2015-2016 Food City School Bucks program.  The presentations were made at the Food City store at 5604 Hixson Pike in Chattanooga Monday morning.  The store also commemorated the installation of a new flag pole, with the help of local veterans, and the Hixson High School Quartet.

High schools, middle schools and elementary schools are eligible to participate in the program by simply visiting the company’s website at www.foodcity.com to register their school.  Students of participating schools are supplied with a barcoded school ID to provide to their friends and family members.  When scanned at the checkout, along with their Food City ValuCard, the barcode alerts the system of the corresponding school to credit with the purchases, making points collection quick and easy. 

For every $10 in Food City Exclusive Brand purchases, the designated school received 1 point toward their School Buck rewards.  At the end of the program, school points were totaled and the contribution proportionally allocated to each school based upon the number of points they accrued from customer purchases registered to their school.  Schools were able to monitor their progress on Food City’s website (www.foodcity.com), which included bi-annual updates. 

Participating brands included:  Food City, Food Club, Full Circle, Harvest Club, Paws, ValuTime, Top Care, Rosario’s, Bistro Deli Classics, Academix, Domestix, Electrix, Easy Clix, Simply Done, @ Ease, World Classics products, Wide Awake Coffee, b-leve, Flocks Finest, Charking, Tippy Toes, Buckley Farms, Sweet P’s, Nostimo, Misty Mountain Water, Over the Top, as well as Kay’s Ice Cream, Terry’s Snacks, Lay Meats, Moore’s, Kern’s Bread & Cakes and Chuck Wagon Dog Food. 

To date, Food City has awarded over $17,200,000 in much-needed educational equipment and tools to over of 1,000 participating schools. 

The 2016-2017 School Bucks program is already underway and continues through April 25, 2017.  Food City has once again committed a total of $700,000 for the school year.

Eligible schools are encouraged to visit the website to register at www.foodcity.com, or for more information about the program or how to participate, they can contact the Food City School Bucks Coordinator, Lisa Johnson at 1-800-232-0174.
