You can now help out the Food Bank of the Southern Tier when you go to pay for your groceries at one local grocery retailer.
Tops Friendly Markets launched its annual Check Out Hunger campaign on Sunday. The US Department of Agriculture estimates that more than 34 million people are food insecure, nine million of which are children. With the community’s support, however, Tops officials say we can make a difference. When shopping at Tops simply tell your cashier you’d like to help Tops Check Out Hunger and a donation of $2, $3, or $5 will help provide food for your local food bank.
“Eradicating hunger and assisting our fellow neighbors in need is part of Tops core mission so supporting this effort on an annual basis is something that we gladly stand behind,” said Kristen Hanson, Vice President of Center Store, Our Brands & Pharmacy and FeedMore WNY board member.
The campaign runs through February 4th.
