ShopRite employees from 2021

Employees from four Zallie Family Markets ShopRite stores in South Jersey will be featured on special edition Cheerios boxes that highlight the struggle of food insecurity while also honoring members of the ShopRite teams for raising money to solve that problem.

More than 300 ShopRite stores on the East Coast of the U.S. participated in a fall 2022 fundraising drive that netted more than $1.2 million. Store employees collected donations at check-out and hosted store-based events to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger. Much of that fundraising took place in September, which is Hunger Action Month.

Employees from the 50 top fundraising stores earned spots on the cereal boxes, including the ShopRite stores of West Deptford, Medford, Chews Landing and West Berlin.

The special edition Cheerios boxes, to be sold at ShopRite stores, will be unveiled during in-store celebrations in March. 

  • ShopRite of West Deptford will honor Carol Christman (Sewell) and Linda Bissinger-Crall (West Deptford) at 10 a.m. on March 15. 
  • ShopRite of Chews Landing will recognize Tanaya Holmes (Sicklerville) and Rachel Ann Salerno (Bellmawr) at noon on March 15. 
  • ShopRite of West Berlin will honor Nancy DeAngelis (Medford) and Joanie Messaoudi (Cherry Hill) at 10 a.m. on March 21. 
  • ShopRite of Medford will recognize Rosa Tuzzolo (Shamong) and Jeffrey Price (Marlton) at noon on March 21. 

“I am so proud of these eight team members and everyone in all 11 Zallie Family Markets ShopRite stores who worked toward our fundraising goals last year,” said David Zallie, owner of Zallie Family Markets.

“Helping our local communities has always been one of our core values, especially in the area of food insecurity. We wholeheartedly support the Partners In Caring program that supports more than 2,200 charities.” 

Since its founding, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated more than $50 million to soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, senior citizen centers and other organizations. In addition to contributing to the fund, the stores also will designate organizations to receive part of the money raised. The remainder will be shared by Partners In Caring around southern New Jersey. 

  • ShopRite of West Deptford raised $19,900 and will give $500 donations to the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministry in Woodbury. 
  • ShopRite of Chews Landing raised $15,600 and will direct $500 donations to St. Vincent de Paul. 
  • ShopRite of West Berlin raised $12,500. The store chose Hope Church (West Berlin) to receive a $500 donation. 
  • ShopRite of Medford raised $17,600. The store designated St. Vincent de Paul to receive a $500 donation.  

Together, the Zallie Family Markets locations raised nearly $110,500.  

“As a family-owned and operated business, we take the needs of our communities seriously,” Zallie said. “Participating in this contest every year, raising money that will directly and immediately affect our local families means everything. I am grateful for the opportunity.” 

ShopRite stores are independently-owned and -operated as part of the Wakefern Food Corp. Zallie Family Markets is the regional collection of ShopRite stores of Chews Landing, Knorr Street (Philadelphia), Laurel Hill, Lawnside, Medford, Gibbstown, Glassboro, Sicklerville, West Berlin, West Deptford and Williamstown.
