Check Out Hunger Campaign Underway

Western New Yorkers can help feed the hungry while shopping at area grocery stores and retailers participating in the annual Check Out Hunger campaign to benefit the Food Bank of Western New York.

Customers have the option to donate $2, $3 or $5 at the register in order to help the Food Bank of WNY and its member agencies provide nutritious food and support to those in need throughout Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara counties.

Community members can participate in Check Out Hunger at the following retail partners:

¯ Tops Friendly Markets locations – now through Feb. 17

¯ Wegmans Food Markets locations – now through Feb. 28

“Hunger unfortunately can be found in every corner of Western New York. It affects individuals and families residing in our inner cities, suburbs and rural communities,” said Tara A. Ellis, president and CEO of the Food Bank of WNY. “We thank our retail partners for coming together once again to ‘Check Out Hunger,’ and we encourage the community to support their neighbors in need by donating to this important campaign.”
