Date:6/10/2009

Grant Application Deadline: August 14, 2009

ITASCA, Ill., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- JEWEL-OSCO, a leading Midwest food and drug retailer, announced today that the company will begin accepting applications for its "Hunger Relief Grant Program," designed to fund the operational needs of food pantries and soup kitchens.

Now in its second year, the $300,000 block grant program is conducted in partnership with three "Feeding America" area food banks, including the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD), the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) and the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana (FBNI).

"Food pantries and soup kitchens are a lifeline to many families during these difficult economic times," said Jewel-Osco President Keith Nielsen. "Hunger relief is a key part of our community partnership agenda. We know these funds will be put to good use."

Qualified agencies can apply for grants of up to $2,500 that are designed to improve their operational efficiency and maximize their existing resources. Among the funding possibilities, the grant program offers a food credit of up to $750, which is administered directly through the food banks.

Grant application forms will be available online through the websites at GCFD, NIFB and FBNI. The food banks will also mail the applications directly to pantries that are current members. Agencies have until August 14th to submit a completed grant request by mail. Grants will be awarded in November.

Last year, the Hunger Relief Grant Program provided over 100 pantries with funding to buy equipment such as stoves, refrigerators, shelving and sorting tables. The program also provided funding for the transportation and delivery of food supplies.
