Weis raises $340K to fight hunger
As part of its 11th annual Fight Hunger campaign, Weis Markets and its associates raised $340,000 for more than 150 community hunger-relief organizations in the communities the grocery company serves, according to a press release.
The Weis Fight Hunger program, which ran from Aug. 30 to Oct. 3, allowed customers to donate using $1, $3, $5 or $10 vouchers or by rounding up at checkout to help food-insecure families in their communities, the release states.
Customers also purchased and donated shelf-stable items such as canned goods, pasta, peanut butter, applesauce and soup.
The campaign benefits local food banks and pantries throughout the company’s seven-state market area.
Regional food banks, which help coordinate local pickups, also participate in the program, including the Maryland Food Bank, the release states.
