CHEF'STORE Annual Charity Fundraiser

Back Print

September 15, 2023

At CHEF’STORE, supporting our communities is at the heart of what we do. We have a deep history within the foodservice industry with a focus on supporting independent restaurant operators and home cooks alike. But our efforts don’t stop there. 

Fundraising for our Local Food Banks

Since starting the program in 2012, our teams have raised nearly $2 million for food banks serving every community where we have locations. Each year, US Foods | CHEF’STORE has several initiatives to encourage our staff, partners, and communities to join us in our effort to fight hunger. 

Donating Food

Each store location pairs with their local food bank. This partnership is selected by the store and maintained throughout the year with weekly pickups of unsellable but good food and supplies. 

Donating Money

We work closely with our vendors to raise money for store partners in the form of a one-week in-store fundraiser. Every penny raised by the store is directly donated to their local partner. 

CHEF’STORE In-Store Campaign

Today, our fundraising efforts, partnerships, and volunteer opportunities are still going strong. This year marks the 12th annual in-store fundraising campaign kickoff! What’s special about this campaign is the direct involvement of our teams and customers. Recently, we assigned Charity Captains in each store to steward these efforts. 

How you can help

With more individuals and families relying on local food banks than ever before, we invite you to join us by contributing to our fundraising drive or by visiting your local food bank. This year's in-store campaign runs from September 24th through September 30th. Visit your local CHEF'STORE location and look for the store donation can flyers! Upon checking out, mention to the store clerk that you would like to donate. This year, US FOODS will be matching our collective customer donations up to $10,000!
