Weis Markets has launched its annual Fight Hunger in-store donation program in support of hundreds of local food banks and regional food pantries in its seven-state market area.
The program runs through the end of September. At checkout, customers have the option of rounding up their order or purchasing a $1, $3, $5 or $10 voucher to help support families in need in their communities.
“This is a tremendously challenging time for food insecure families in the communities we serve and the hundreds of food banks and pantries who serve them,” said Ron Bonacci, VP of advertising and marketing. “Our customers have been steadfast in their support for these organizations in the past, and we hope they will consider donating once again. As part of our program, Weis Markets will also continue to donate to our regional food bank partners”
This is Weis Markets’ 14th annual Fight Hunger campaign, which has collectively raised more than $4 million and been supplemented by company donations.
Weis Markets’ Fight Hunger Campaign works with regional food banks throughout its seven-state market area, including: The Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania; The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (Harrisburg and Williamsport, Pennsylvania); Helping Harvest (Reading, Pennsylvania); The Maryland Food Bank; The Commission on Economic Opportunity/The Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Pennsylvania); Greater Berks Food Bank (Reading, Pennsylvania); Philabundance (Montgomery and Bucks counties, Pennsylvania); Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse/Broome County Council of Churches; Food Bank of the Southern Tier (Elmira, New York); Community Food Bank of New Jersey; Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank (Virginia); Food Bank of Delaware; and Mountaineer Food Bank (West Virginia).
