Grocery shoppers help “bag hunger”
UNDATED — Grocery shoppers have helped to “bag hunger” this month. Customers at GIANT Food Stores and MARTIN’S Food Markets recently donated $587,545 at the checkout to support hunger relief. The donations were part of the company’s “Bag Hunger” campaign.
The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is one of the major recipients of the donations. The fundraiser ran from February 24 through March 9. This is the first of two in-store campaigns conducted annually. The second will coincide with September’s Hunger Action Month. (Codi Jade)
