Price Chopper collects food, raises cash for food banksJanuary 28,2013
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper’s 2012 “Check Out Hunger” campaign raised $24,682 and 34,349 pounds of food for 14 local food banks and their affiliated kitchens and pantries in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.
“At Price Chopper, we’re committed to helping people feed and care for themselves and their families throughout the year,” said Mona Golub, vice president of public relations, consumer and marketing services. “After the year-end holidays, many food banks have low reserves. Our ‘Check Out Hunger’ campaign helps to raise funds, food and awareness that hunger is a year-round issue for so many in our communities.”
For six weeks in November and December, “Check Out Hunger” gave 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. It also gave customers the option of purchasing a $5, $10 or $15 selection of pantry essentials.MORE IN World/National BusinessSAN FRANCISCO — Google is introducing an application that will connect Android smartwatches with...
