Dollar General's Food First Initiative is providing access to fresh foods in underserved areas by offering healthier, affordable food options like Sammi Sandwiches.

Dollar General’s Food First Initiative is expanding the availability of fresh foods in their stores, offering a wide selection of items including deli meats, milk, cheese, and notably, Sammi Sandwiches. This initiative is part of Dollar General’s commitment to providing healthier food options and addressing the issue of food deserts—areas identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as lacking in fresh fruit and vegetable sources. Dollar General’s accessible and convenient locations make fresh food options readily available in underserved communities, where such options were previously limited or non-existent.

The impact of this initiative extends beyond immediate access to fresh food. It also contributes to combating the broader issue of food insecurity in the United States. With its extensive store footprint, Dollar General is uniquely positioned to make a significant difference in the lives of millions of Americans facing challenges in accessing affordable, nutritious food.

We believe Sammi Sandwiches perfectly complement Dollar General’s Food First Initiatives, offering a convenient, affordable, and nutritious option in areas with limited access. We are very proud that the Sammi lineup can enhance Dollar General’s success in improving fresh food access in underserved areas nationwide.
