A portion of fresh&easy lemonade sales will be donated to pediatric cancer charity
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market today announced it is celebrating National Lemonade Day with a two-week lemonade sale and fundraiser to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). Now through September 4th, Fresh & Easy will donate 5% of the sales of its own brand lemonades to help in the fight against pediatric cancers.
The fresh&easy brand lemonades that are a part of this fundraiser include*:
Like all fresh&easy brand products, these lemonades do not contain any artificial colors, flavors or high-fructose corn syrup.
Fresh & Easy is also giving customers the option to donate directly to ALSF when checking out. Through September 4, every time a customer scans the barcode on the yellow lemon signs attached to the assisted check-outs, $1 will be donated to help fund cutting-edge cancer research projects as well as a travel program for cancer victims’ families.
“We are thrilled to have the support of Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market in the battle against childhood cancer through the sale of their lemonade varieties,” said Liz Scott, Alex’s mom and Co-Executive Director of ALSF. “What better way to celebrate National Lemonade Day than by joining together with Fresh & Easy to continue the mission of our daughter, a cure for all kids with cancer.”
“We’re happy to be raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation with the help of our customers,” said John Burry, Fresh & Easy Chief Customer Officer. “Our goal is to help fight childhood cancers by raising awareness and supporting future research, which is why we’re donating a portion of our lemonade sales to this great charity.”

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $55 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 250 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
