School Bucks FAQs


For 2015-2016 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.

Attention Chattanooga and GA Food City customers & schools: Food City School Bucks will begin in your area in January 2016. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting program!

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.
