Food 4 Less Stores 'Giving Hope a Hand(R)' in October by Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Initiatives
Date:10/1/2009

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Foods 4 Less' "Giving Hope a Hand®" breast cancer awareness campaign, Food 4 Less, in partnership with key suppliers, has committed $235,000 in donations to support breast cancer initiatives in the local communities Food 4 Less serves.

This year's campaign will also feature two Food 4 Less Team Members who are breast cancer survivors. Maria Galvan and Ruth Williford share their survivor stories on the packaging of these items, which will be sold exclusively in Food 4 Less stores. Their stories are also featured on a special website: www.sharingcourage.com.

Williford, co-manager at the Lancaster Food 4 Less store at 44455 Valley Central Way, will be featured on packages of Keebler Rite Bite Cookies - Fudge. She shares her story to educate others.

"My first thought was better me than my daughters. I was scared, but I was resigned to the fact that whatever happened would happen. If it was meant for me to survive, I would. I've been cancer free for 10 years.

"My advice to other women facing breast cancer is to not give up. Talk about your feelings and fears. It's best to get them out because somehow it frees you and helps you to better understand what you're going through."

Galvan, a cashier at the Food 4 Less store at 120 South Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas, will be featured as a life-size cutout that will be displayed in her store in southern Nevada and California. The cutout includes a message from Galvan encouraging women to get regular mammograms and perform regular self-examinations.

"I was always pretty good about doing my self-exams. But one day, I raised my arm and noticed something," said Galvan, a Las Vegas resident. "When I
