Grocery store wants to fight hunger in the community
Solution: Solicit donations from shoppers at the checkout
Shoppers in the The Rochester and Finger region are once again showing their generosity through Foodlink's
Check Out Hunger campaign
. The point of sale fundraising effort allows shoppers to donate $1, $2, $3, or $5 to their grocery bill. All proceeds benefit Foodlink, the regional food bank, and its efforts to end hunger.
Check Out Hunger is running at the 28 local Tops Friendly Markets stores as well as 11 local and independent grocers through February 21st. Combined with the Check Out Hunger campaign at Wegmans stores this past fall, Foodlink hopes to raise a cumulative $750,000 for its hunger-related programs.
