Price Chopper's 2014 Check Out Hunger campaign, which ran from mid-November to mid-December, raised more than $47,000 and 29 tons of food for 12 local food banks and their affiliated kitchens and pantries in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.
The annual chain-wide effort "helps to raise funds, food and awareness that hunger is a year-round issue for so many in our communities," explained Mona Golub, VP of public relations and consumer services for the Schenectady, N.Y.-based grocer. "Traditionally, the start of the year is a tough time for food pantries that worked so hard to provide for those in need throughout the holiday season."
Check Out Hunger enables shoppers to add small monetary donations to their bills via the Round Up Your Change program and/or buy a $5, $10 or $15 Food Package containing pantry staples. The monetary and food donations go to local food banks/pantries across Price Chopper’s six-state Northeast footprint.
The Golub Corp. owns and operates 134 Price Chopper and Market 32 grocery stores. Golub's 22,000 teammates collectively own more than 47 percent of the company’s privately held stock, making it one of the nation’s largest privately held corporations that is predominantly employee-owned.
