Every September through January, the Check-Out Hunger Campaign begins at most major supermarkets in our area. Displays with coupons of $1, $3 and $5 are positioned at each check-out counter to give shoppers an easy way to donate to the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties – just add the value of the coupon to your grocery bill at the check-out counter to help a local family in need. 100% of the proceeds go to the FoodBank to help fight hunger in our neighborhoods.
Participating stores include A&P, Fine Fair, Foodtown, Genuardi’s, Pathmark, Shop n Bag, ShopRite, Super Fresh, Wawa and Wegmans. Check-Out Hunger 2013 in New Jersey is made possible in part by a grant from Premio, makers of fine Italian sausages.
The FoodBank serves one out of ten people living in Monmouth and Ocean Counties through our network of feeding programs. More than 127,000 people – including over 51,000 children – receive food from the FoodBank.
Every dollar counts! For every dollar you donate, the FoodBank is able to provide a family with 9 pounds of groceries.
Volunteers are needed each year as well to help replenish the coupons at their local supermarket. If you can help, please call the FoodBank or email email@example.com. Thank you!
