The Southern California grocery store chain has teamed up with pasadena-based Union Station Homeless Services to collect food for those in need. The market will be hosting food drives in all six of its stores from November 18 until the end of the year.“I am excited about this opportunity to help our communities,” said Daniel Barth, General Manager of Super King Markets. “Super King is in the food business. The opportunity to support a great organization like Union Station Homeless Services that focuses on feeding people is a natural partnership for us.”“On the very first day of the food drive,” continued Barth, “one of our customers donated $80 worth of food! I feel proud that we are engaging our shoppers to help others in such an impactful and intentional way.”The food collected will be used to prepare holiday meals at Union Station’s “Dinners-in-the-Park,” a holiday feast which feeds more than 7,000 people on Thanksgiving and Christmas. In addition to donating food, Super King is also a sponsor of the annual event, which will be held in Pasadena’s Central Park on November 27th and December 25th.“This amazing community event would not be possible without the support of sponsors like Super King, as well hundreds of volunteers who help us serve food on Thanksgiving and Christmas”.For Super King shoppers and other friends of the community that want to support Union Station Homeless Services and the Dinners-in-the-Park holiday food drive, here is a list of the most needed food drive items:Item NeededItems can be dropped of Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 412 S.
