Relay Foods, the healthy online grocery store, and Relay For Life, the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society (ACS), will partner in an initiative to battle cancer, that encourages participants to make healthier food choices. Throughout 2016, Relay Foods will donate 20% of all qualifying customer orders to the American Cancer Society. To participate, customers should visit before placing their orders.

“The American Cancer Society and Relay Foods both have strong connections with the community in which we serve,” says Michelle Daichman, Senior Director for the American Cancer Society. “ACS is very excited to partner with Relay Foods and provide fundraising and educational opportunities to our Relay For Life participants throughout the area.”

This Spring, Relay Foods will sponsor eight American Cancer Society Relay For Life events in the Baltimore and D.C. Metro areas. At each event, Relay Foods will provide healthy snacks to all participants and volunteers. Support Relay For Life and learn more about Relay Foods at these upcoming events:

Relay Foods and the American Cancer Society have partnered on successful events in past years. In October 2015, Relay Foods’ Local Market Team provided food, cooked, and served a three-course dinner for all residents of the Hope Lodge in Baltimore. The Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay while receiving treatment.  For more information about Relay For Life, visit
