June 9, 2018 was Giant Food’s second year participating in the Washington, DC Capital Pride Parade. Giant had over 50 volunteers including our partners from Monumental Sports! More than 500,000 people from around the world come to Washington, DC for the Capital Pride Parade. The crowds were screaming and excited to see Giant Food being active in the LGBTQ community. Giant Food was “roaring with pride!” Thank you to all who came out to make this a successful parade!
On June 10, 2018 Giant Food participated in the 2018 Capital Pride Festival in Washington, DC. More than 600,00 people from around the world came out to celebrate. Giant Food had a booth setup along with our community partners from Monumental Sports. At our booth, we gave away beach balls, gift cards, BBQ Battle tickets, water, apples, fruit bars, sunglasses and more! Giant was the hit of the festival, and the only booth that handed out free water & snacks from our pride shopping carts! Monumental Sports had a basketball court setup up to see who had some game! Thanks to all the volunteers who came out to show their support!
