Support Huerto with a Fred Meyer Rewards Card !

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Huerto de la Familia at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us by our name: Huerto de la Familia.
  • Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping Huerto earn a donation!
  • You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
  • For more information, please visit www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards.
