Washington Redskins Cheerleaders to Help Hand Over Ham at Local Safeway

(Updated 2:20 p.m.) It’s been a week of ups and downs for the Safeway next to the Bradlee Shopping Center.

A couple days ago it was robbed at knifepoint. But tomorrow it will host a group of Washington Redskins cheerleaders as the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) receives a large food donation.

On Thursday (Dec. 19), at 11 a.m., the Safeway at 3526 King Street is scheduled to host a donation event during which over 800 boneless hams from Hormel — just in time for the holidays — and 100 jars of peanut butter will be handed over to CAFB, according to a press release.

The release notes that this amounts to 4,800 servings of ham and enough peanut butter to make 1,000 sandwiches.

The food bank, meanwhile, will distribute the food through a network of community organizations and directly delivering food to hard-to-reach areas.
