2014 Check Out Hunger Campaign is Underway

From Food Bank of the Southern Tier:

The Food Bank of the Southern Tier announces the start of its annual Check Out Hunger fundraising campaign. The Food Bank is partnering with local grocery retailers to raise donations to help support hunger-relief and increase awareness surrounding the issue of hunger in our community.

Starting now through March 1st, donation coupons are conveniently located at participating store checkout registers. Making a contribution to the campaign is easy.
Shoppers simply have the cashier scan the donation amount they choose, $2, $3, or $5, and the donation appears on their shopping receipt.

Participating stores include Jubilee Foods, Save-A-Lot, TOPS Friendly Markets, and Wegmans Food Markets. All donations stay right here in the Southern Tier to fight local hunger!

• $2 donations help provide 6 meals to neighbors in need
• $3 donations help feed a child in need for a weekend with the
BackPack Program™
• $5 donations help the Food Bank acquire $28 worth of food to help
feed families in need
Each week, over 11,000 individuals visit a hunger-relief member agency served by the Food Bank. In 2013, the Food Bank distributed over 9.7 million pounds of food to neighbors in need across the six Southern Tier

counties of Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins.
To learn more about how you can make a difference in the fight against hunger, visit the Food Bank’s website
