Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: Food Town is Joining the Fight

Join your Food Town in supporting Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser has become something of a tradition at your Food Town, and for a pretty great reason. With our deep roots in Houston and status as a neighborhood grocery, we’re big on giving back to those around us however we can.

This year, as in the past, we’re a proud sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer fundraiser — and we’d like to invite YOU to get involved! The good news? Helping to save lives by joining the fight is probably easier than you think.

Curious to know what Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is all about? (Or how you can help make a difference?) You’ve come to the right place, neighbor. Read on for a few things you should know.

What is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer?
An annual event that’s been going on for more than 20 years, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is an initiative put forth by the American Cancer Society. It brings people of all ages, walks of life and backgrounds together to show support for those who’ve experienced the disease, bring in funds to help fight the disease — and raise awareness surrounding the disease.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a massive initiative, with fundraising and awareness efforts taking place in cities all across the U.S. Your Food Town is proud to be among the companies helping this incredible organization make a difference here in Houston. (And we’ve done so for years!)

In the past, we took much of the work on behind the scenes, getting our awesome team members involved to raise funds, amp up the excitement and take part in local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events. As time progressed, though, we learned our customers wanted in on the action, too. (Who can blame you? It’s a great cause!)

Now, we focus a lot of our efforts during Breast Cancer Awareness Month on spreading the word about Making Strides — and empowering Food Town shoppers and team members alike to make their own contributions.
