For many families across the county, back to school is looking very different this year. One thing that won’t change is your desire to provide healthy, nutritious lunches for your whole family.

So many adjustments, so many changes.
In households across the country the classroom has moved to your kitchen table. The playground is now in your own backyard. What’s worse, instead of loading money onto your kids lunch account, you get to fill the roll of lunch lady too.
While these new adjustments makes things more difficult for the you, when it comes to lunches Safeway has your back. By keeping your fridge and pantry stocked, you’ll have just what you need to keep the whole family happy.
No matter your lunch style, with fresh options from the deli, bakery, and produce section, Safeway has your school lunch covered.
Back to School with Safeway
Let’s start with a classic deli sandwich. It’s a hit with any age and fairly easy for your kids to learn to make themselves. That’s right! With a little practice, your kids can master the mayo and maybe even learn to cut off their own crusts. Maybe.
Stock up on a variety of kid friendly sliced meats and cheeses. Buying in the deli means you can buy as much or as little as you need. Everyone can get their favorite, even if that changes on a weekly basis. Don’t forget the bread!
As your kids learn to fix their own plates, don’t forget to add in fresh fruits and veggies. Even better, grab a few Fresh-Cut snack packs. They are filled with fresh fruits like berries, grapes, and pineapple and Safeway has already done the washing and chopping for you. Your kids can grab what they need and save the rest for later. A nutrition win for them. A “one less dish to wash” win for you.
Looking to switch it up from sandwiches and fruit? Head on over to the deli department and check out the individually size snack packs. With options like salami and cheese, hummus and pretzels, or guacamole and chips, there are plenty of varieties available to keep your lunch options as fresh as the food!
Before you head to the register, don’t forget the chocolate chip cookies! With the perfect balance of soft cookie and sweet chocolate, you can’t ever go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.
I shopped at Safeway in my local area, but you can also find convenient and delicious ingredients for back to school lunches at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, and Tom Thumb. Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ for convenient ways to shop!
With Safeway back to school lunches will be a breeze this year!
Back to School Grilling
Now that you’ve got lunch sorted out, let’s talk about dinner! Summer nights may be getting shorter, but there is still enough daylight for few more meals on the grill. These are some of my favorites:
