Purchase Grocery Cards (Download Form)

What are grocery cards?
Cash cards or certificates that are issued by local grocery stores and used like cash to purchase groceries. $100 card buys $100 worth of groceries.

How does this help AYPO?
AYPO purchases grocery cards at a 5% discount, earning 5% off of the sale of each card.

For which stores can I buy grocery cards?
Cards are available for Giant and Shoppers Food Warehouse. If you shop at Safeway, please see below for information about their E-scrip program.

How do I purchase grocery cards?
Grocery cards may be purchased by printing the order form and mailing it to the AYPO office (4026 Hummer Road, Annandale, VA 22003) along with check made payable to AYPO. Grocery cards will also be available at concerts throughout the season.

What if my store purchase is greater than the amount of grocery cards that I hold?
You may supplement grocery cards with cash, check, debit, or credit cards to pay for your purchase at the store.

What if I lose my grocery card?
Unfortunately, they are just like cash and cannot be replaced. So once you purchase the card(s), treat them as you would cash.

For more information, contact the General Manager:
703-642-8052 or manager@aypo.org
