Now that Dominick's stores have closed throughout the Chicago area, local food banks are feeling the loss as the grocery chain was formerly a donor to area food pantries. According to CBS Chicago:
The loss of dozens of Dominick’s stores in the Chicago area has proved to be a mixed blessing for local food banks.
WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, on one hand, organizations that feed the hungry benefitted from the donation of two truckloads of food and household products left over after most of the remaining Dominick’s stores closed last month.
On the other hand, Dominick’s had been a major benefactor to food banks, and will no longer be providing donations to an annual effort to fight hunger, once every Dominick’s grocery closes for good.
