Check Out Hunger
During the months of November and December, area grocery store locations feature Check Out Hunger pads in $1, $5 and $10 denominations at checkout stands. Shoppers who would like to participate can tear off a coupon and hand it to the cashier, who then swipes the coupon's barcode to add the corresponding amount to the shopper's grocery bill.
Based on these transactions the Food Bank accumulates an account in each partner store, and then purchases items for hungry neighbors at that store. It is a win-win-win promotion: the shopper can easily make a donation to help families in need, the stores make sales, and the Food Bank is able to gather its most needed items for distribution to its agencies. In 2016, Check Out Hunger raised more than $16,852 worth of food for the hungry children, adults and seniors who live in our service area.
