School Bucks FAQs

What are Food City School Bucks?

For 2014-2015 school year, Food City will donate $600,000 in cash through the Food City School Bucks program.  The points your school earns will help grow their share of the $600,000 total.  It's like a pie - the size of your school's slice will depend on how many points they have received.  Schools should encourage their supporters to register their ValuCard for the Food City School Bucks program.

Why should I register my ValuCard in support of a school?

Each time a registered supporter purchases $10 worth of Food City Exclusive Brands with their ValuCard, one point will automatically go to the school of their choice. Every qualifying purchase after registering and using your ValuCard entitles your chosen school to earn more points, thus a greater share of the School Bucks rewards.  The more qualifying purchases, and the more participants in support of your chosen school, the larger the School Bucks check at the end of the year for your school.

How do I know my school's code number?

Participating schools will communicate their School ID number through flyers that will be sent home with the students, display posters in the school hall and classrooms, newsletters, or you can click here and enter your school's zip code to find your school's code number.  Also, each Food City store will have a list of school ID numbers located at the customer service desk.  Schools not registered may register online by clicking here or may simply call the Food City School Bucks coordinator, Abby Meyer at 1-800-232-0174.

What purchases qualify for points?

Participating brands include:  Food City, Food Club, Full Circle, Paws Premium, Valu Time, Top Care, Academix, Domestix, Electrix, EasyClix, World Classics and Dining-In, Chuck Wagon, Moore's Chips products, as well as Kay's Ice Cream, Terry's Snacks, Lay Meats, Kern's Bread & Cakes products. **Certain restrictions and exclusions apply:  alcohol, tobacco, pharmacy, gift cards, lottery tickets, fuel and video where restricted by law are excluded from the Food City exclusive brand purchases.

How are the points calculated?

Each time a registered supporter purchases $10 worth of Food City Exclusive Brands with their ValuCard, one point will automatically go to the school of their choice.  The more supporters register their ValuCard to your school and the more they shop at Food City, then the greater the opportunity to earn School Bucks points.

When can I sign up?

The results from the 2013-2014 are being finalized and checks will be presented by local store managers in September/October of 2014.  Please check back here on August 24, 2014 to register your card for the 2014-2015 school year.
