Albertsons Companies Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors Program in partnership with The Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning (FILL) is recognizing students’ efforts as they work to end hunger in their neighborhoods. Teams of students in communities across 15 states worked to improve availability and access to food through various community service projects as part of FILL’s Explore.Act.Tell. program. The teams had the opportunity to enter their hunger solutions projects in a challenge for a chance to win grants to support local hunger-related non-profit organizations.
The grants are awarded as part of the Explore.Act.Tell. Challenge. Top teams from participating schools receive a greant for their community charity of choice to address hunger solutions. Each of these teams worked to EXPLORE hunger, ACT by doing a project and TELL others by sharing their story.
The Challenge is the culmination of the Explore.Act.Tell. lessons for grades six through twelve. The young people of our country are smart, collaborative and compassionate.The Explore.Act.Tell. program helps them to build their skills and provides a framework to help them make a difference in their communities” said Diane Barrett, Executive Director of the Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning. “Albertsons Companies Foundation, the Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning and the Kellogg’s EGGO team are so proud of these educators, their students and the schools”.
Winning teams for the 2022-2023 school year represented schools from 15 participating states. They are in communities served by Albertsons Companies grocery stores including Safeway, ACME, Shaw’s, Star Market, Jewel-Osco and Kings Food Markets.

community! We can’t wait to see what they will do this year!
Explore.Act.Tell.® teaches young people to become aware of food insecurity issues in their neighborhoods. They will practice skills needed to become good citizens and advocate for community involvement and service. Through four interactive lessons, students will create and implement a hunger solution project and develop a promotional PSA video. This is a program of the Foundation for
Impact on Literacy and Learning.
