Shame on albertsons / Safeway events

shame on albertsons

Thanks for your interest in joining our actions to hold Albertsons/Safeway accountable!

Did you know that when Safeway/Albertsons decides to leave a neighborhood, they sometimes block other grocery stores from opening up in their former locations? Some of these restrictions have been for as long as 15 years, devastating community health!

Please join Food Empowerment Project at these events listed below as we take a stand against a corporation that is impacting the health of Black and Brown communities and low-income neighborhoods.

We will provide signs and leaflets to hand out.

* Suggested language and details: Please make a polite phone call and keep in mind the person you are speaking to probably has no idea about this policy—most people don’t. You just need to stay on the line for a customer service representative. For Safeway, they will ask you for your full name and phone number and if you have a Safeway card number.
 
Suggested language: “I am calling to log a comment against a Safeway / Albertsons policy that sometimes puts restrictive deeds on its former properties and prevents other grocery stores from moving in, sometimes for 10 years or more. This has impacted community health. I would like Safeway / Albertsons to end this policy immediately.”
 

If they ask questions you cannot answer, feel free to provide our email: info@foodispower.org and remind them you are calling because you disagree with this practice.

Order some of our leaflets to share with others by emailing info(at)foodispower.org.
