Amazon’s grocery businesses – Amazon Fresh and Amazon Pantry – and our Prime Now delivery services allow our customers to fit grocery shopping into their routines and improve their busy lives.
We are continuously working on initiatives to minimize the amount of food going to landfills. For the past few years, our U.S. fulfillment centers have been helping their local communities by donating food to local food banks. In 2016 we launched Amazon’s first nationwide initiative with Feeding America in our U.S. fulfillment centers to donate excess food to Feeding America, a U.S.-based non-profit organization whose mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks. Through our nationwide initiative with Feeding America, our U.S. fulfillment centers donated enough pounds of food in 2016 to provide 5.3 million meals for those in need.
