IRVING, Texas — 7-Eleven is donating more than $1.2 million in 7-Select Go!Smart Organic Cold-Pressed Juices to Feeding America.

That amounts to nearly 1 million 11.2-ounce bottles of the juice, which comes in flavors like Blackberry, Melon and Pink Pomegranate. The juices are part of the convenience-store chain’s private brand line.

"Since 1927, 7-Eleven has been a lifeline for the communities we serve—with an unwavering commitment to provide our customers with the essentials they need when they need them," said Jack Stout, senior vice president of merchandising and demand chain at 7-Eleven. "We are proud to partner with Feeding America to help communities facing hunger during these uncertain times."

Feeding America and 7-Eleven will distribute about 46,000 cases of the juice to 21 food banks in 13 states across the country.

"We are grateful for 7-Eleven's commitment to donate much needed product to Feeding America member food banks," said Tony Pupillo, managing director of retail food industry partnerships at Chicago-based Feeding America. "The need for food assistance is even greater this summer due to the pandemic, but this donation will help our neighbors who struggle to put food on their tables."

Irving, Texas-based 7-Eleven is No. 1 on CSP’s 2020 Top 202 ranking of U.S. c-store chains by number of retail outlets.
