Shoprite’s Partners in Caring fight against hunger

Chances are we’ve all experienced or know someone who has experienced hunger. It’s an epidemic in this country; 31 million people will miss at least one meal today, too many of them children and senior citizens. Shoprite’s Partners in Caring is trying to do something about that. When you purchase specially marked items within Shoprite’s stores you support one of 50 plus companies whose donations help hunger-fighting charities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and Pennsylvania. These means every time you pick up that bottle of juice, can of vegetables, tube of toothpaste or box of pasta you are helping YOUR community fight the hunger pains. Each Shoprite is working directly with local charities so your Shoprite’s Partners in Caring purchases are being received by neighborhood food banks, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior programs, battered women’s shelters, rehab centers and after school programs.

Since its beginning in 1999, Shoprite’s Partners in Caring program has donated more than $20 million in food and other products to its communities. With partners like General Mills, Kraft, Nabisco, Procter & Gamble and many others fighting hunger I easier than you think. Purchase a product that has a Shoprite Partners in Caring tag and the manufacturer will make a donation to the program, that simple.

Shoprite’s Partner in Caring wants you to give your support. General Mills will donate one box of cereal to a local food bank for each of the first 30 comments left on this post.

  12. We all need to find some way to help. Too many hungry people in the world today. People don't realize that 36.2 million people live in households considered to be food insecure just in the US.
