Thank you to Wegmans, and all of the shoppers who participated in this year’s Check Out Hunger campaign! Your generosity between late October and early December added up to $684,797 collected for Foodlink and its many food-related programs. The total exceeded last year’s campaign by more than $45,000.
Check Out Hunger is a point-of-sale campaign during which Wegmans cashiers ask shoppers if they would like to donate $2, $3 or $5 to Foodlink. Shoppers can also choose to round up their grocery bill, or donate whatever amount they choose.
Funding from Check Out Hunger enables Foodlink to distribute over 18 million pounds of food each year to its local network of hundreds of human service organizations throughout our 10-county service area. These community partners include soup kitchens, shelters, and food pantries that are working on the front lines of hunger every day.
Thank you for helping us build healthier communities!
