The independent owners of Foodland supermarkets underwrite the Foodland Scholarship program. It is through this scholarship program that Foodland stores recognize the commitment of high school students to their education and communities. The Foodland Scholarship Program enables deserving high school seniors in their retail markets to receive a $1,000 scholarship to help defray the cost of their post-secondary education.
The program is managed by Foodland’s Scholarship Committee, which selects the winners. The applicants represented a broad cross section of outstanding seniors from all the markets served by Foodland stores, making final scholarship recipient selections difficult. Selections were made based on a variety of considerations, including academic standing, grade-point averages, extra-curricular activities and individual student life challenges.
The independently owned and operated Foodland stores actively support the scholarship program as a means to strengthen commitments to the communities they serve. Foodland stores are supplied by Supervalu, one of the nation’s largest food wholesale distributors. SUPERVALU’s Eastern Region is headquartered in Mechanicsville, Va.
