Save A Lot Awards Athens, TN, Resident A Full Year’s Supply of Groceries

Save A Lot awards Truman Moore of Athens, TN, a year’s supply of everyday grocery essentials, fresh produce and meats, and more during a check presentation on Wednesday, February 24!

Save A Lot kicked off 2021 with a national sweepstakes in which one lucky winner would be awarded a year’s supply of groceries. During the sweepstakes, entrants signed up for Save A Lot’s Smart Shopper Rewards program where they were automatically entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win free groceries for a year. In its first year, Save A Lot received 280,492 entrants across the country, with Truman selected at random as this year’s winner!

As a country, we’re seeing food insecurity more than double since the pandemic hit with nearly 1 in 4 households impacted to-date.* Given this issue, Save A Lot is giving back to the local Athens community by matching the year’s supply of groceries in the form of a food donation (valued at $5,200) to the food pantry at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, who regularly serves food and essentials to 150 families in need each week.
