Price Chopper launches “Check Out Hunger”

Last year, more than $35,000 and 76,000 pounds of food was raised for food banks across New York and New England

(Schenectady, NY)  Price Chopper’s “Check Out Hunger”, a campaign that raises dollars and food donations for designated food banks and their affiliated kitchens and pantries in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont is set to launch for the 2014 holiday season and will run for four weeks from Sunday, November 16 through Saturday, December 13.

“Check Out Hunger” gives shoppers the opportunity to add a small monetary donation to their bill (bringing the total to the next whole dollar amount) through the Round Up Your Change program and/or purchase a set-price Food Package, a $5, $10 or $15 selection of pantry essentials.

“The ‘Check Out Hunger’ campaign helps to raise funds, food and awareness that hunger is a year-round issue in many of our communities,” said Mona Golub, vice president of public relations and consumer services. “Coordinating this annual campaign is an important part of our corporate commitment to help people feed and care for themselves and their families throughout the year. To see the high level of participation from our teammates and customers, who enthusiastically support neighbors and friends in need, is gratifying.”

“Check Out Hunger” is an annual giving program and is available at all 134 Price Choppers throughout the chain’s six state footprint (CT, MA, NH, NY, PA and VT.)
