Cub Awarded Corporate Citizenship Award

On Saturday, May 13th we attended WineFest No. 26, the annual event benefitting children’s health research, education, and care at M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital. This year's event raised a staggering $1.9 million dollars for this important work. Cub was proud to receive the Corporate Citizen Award in recognition of our work with the hospital, and in our communities. Thank you to the University of Minnesota Foundation, the sponsors and all the attendees for making this such a successful weekend for children's health.

In Your Community

At the heart of Cub Foods charitable giving is the idea that being a good corporate citizen is an ongoing responsibility. By helping to create stronger communities, we enhance the quality of life for customers and associates. We know being a good neighbor also means providing for our customers beyond our store's walls.
