Festival Foods Partners with Nonprofits to Boost Donations

Marshfield Festival Foods’ Chooses NonProfit for Donations

OnFocus – Festival Foods is committed to supporting the communities it serves, and one way is by offering shoppers an easy way to donate right at the checkout. In 2017, these giving opportunities – called “icon” campaigns – raised more than $278,000 for nonprofit community organizations throughout Wisconsin.

Each year, nonprofit organizations can apply through the Festival Foods website to hold a 15-day icon sale. After all submissions are in, associates at each Festival Foods location vote on the nonprofits they want to support.

The votes are in for 2018, and the following icons will be promoted in Festival Foods stores
throughout the state this year:

  • In the Southern Wisconsin Region (Kenosha, Mount Pleasant and Somers):
    Muscular Dystrophy Association, Salvation Army, Special Olympics and St. Jude’s
