24th Annual Check Out Hunger and Holiday Food Drive

Check Out Hunger (In-store fundraising) & Holiday Food Drive (in-store food donation)
During the months of November and December, area grocery store locations will 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, dollars raised will be donated to the Food Bank to help us purchase items for hungry neighbors. 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.

Combined, Check Out Hunger and Holiday Food Drive resulted in approximately 173,932 meals during the 2017 holiday season. These are meals for hungry children, adults, older Americans, Veterans and people with disabilities who live in our service area.
