Here are just a few of Bashas' major community commitments:

Community Support Card

Bashas' Community Support Card is a great way to generate funds for your organization.  Here's how it works:

Bashas' Community Support Card
  • Your organization purchases the Community Support Card and receives a 6% discount. The Community Support Card offers your supporters a choice where to shop, as it is accepted at all Bashas', Food City and AJ's stores.
  • Your organization then sells the Community Support Card to supporters at face value and receives a 6% profit.
  • Your supporters can reload their Community Support Card at Bashas', Food City and AJ's Fine Foods stores and your organization will earn 6% of the reload amount.
  • Earnings from reloaded Community Support Cards will be distributed once a month.
  • To get your organization enrolled, simply submit a letter with your organization's name and address stating your interest in participating with our program, plus a copy of the notice from the IRS stating that you are registered as a charitable organization under IRS code section 501(c)3 to: or call 1-866-292-6407.

Annual Food Drives

Bashas' Annual Food Drives

Bashas' holds two major food drives – a Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive in the summer and a Turkey Tuesday Drive during the holiday season. With help from our customers, we've contributed more than a half a million pounds of food, providing meals for those in need. Both drives are a major boon for St. Vincent de Paul and local food banks.

Charity of the Month

Bashas' Charity of the Month

Customers have an opportunity to give back to a local non-profit just about every month in a Bashas' store – whether it be donating food or making a donation at the register. This kind of fundraising has garnered more than $500,000 for local children’s hospitals and local chapters of the Boys & Girls Clubs, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and American Heart Association.

Bashas' Volunteers

Since 1932, our Bashas' members and retirees, along with their families and friends, have volunteered countless hours to community-based projects. Our volunteers have helped children learn to read, assembled back-to-school tool kits for United Way, sorted toys for Salvation Army, served meals to the hungry, and more.

Helping the Environment

Bashas' Helping the Environment

Bashas' has many initiatives in place to reduce our impact on the environment. In fact, we were recycling in Arizona in the 1970s – before it was the "in vogue" thing to do. For more information about our sustainability efforts, click here (PDF).
