Fields Foods Announces Program to Support St. Louis Police Foundation

Also Introduces 10% Discount for All Police, Fire, Military and First Responders

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - Fields Foods®, a locally owned and operated grocery store specializing in locally-produced food products and trusted brands, announced that they are proud to support the St. Louis Police Foundation, a 501c3 organization that provides donations of funds, services and goods to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Fields' customers will have the option to round up any purchase to the next dollar at checkout and the difference will be donated, or to donate any additional amount that they wish to the Foundation to help enable the highest level of police service to the St. Louis community.

St. Louis' Police Department operates on a tight budget, with little to pay for new technology, equipment and improved training. Since its establishment in 2007, the Foundation has donated more than three million dollars in equipment, programs and training to provide St. Louis police officers with the tools to help keep local citizens and officers safe. Additionally, they have given a three million dollar gift to help the Police Department to relocate to much-needed new headquarters at 1915 Olive Street.

"We are grateful to Fields Foods for providing this opportunity for citizens of our community to directly support the men and women of the St Louis Metropolitan Police Department," said Doug Albrecht, President and Co-Founder of the St. Louis Police Foundation. "Funds raised through this program will be used to purchase needed equipment, state-of-the-art technology and officer training programs which help keep our officers safe and ensures the highest level of police service to the community."

Chris Goodson of Fields Foods, who is also co-founder of the St. Louis Police Foundation, said, "Almost seven years ago, businesspeople and community leaders came together to form the St. Louis Police Foundation. This civic partnership helps make this city safer for its citizens and for the people who risk their lives to protect us. Fields Foods is proud to be part of St. Louis' long tradition of giving back to the community, and are happy to help support the men and women that serve and protect our city and country through our donation and discount programs."

In addition to supporting the St. Louis Police Foundation, Fields Foods will be offering a 10% discount to all service members, including members of the police force, fire department, military and first responders when proper identification is shown.

"Offering a discount to service and military members is our way of thanking them for all that they do; we appreciate them choosing to shop at our store. The St. Louis Police Foundation provides a great way for citizens and local businesses to come together and help empower our police force with what they need to keep everyone safer," said Jeffrey D. Randol, Fields Foods.
