Check Out Hunger is a major fundraiser for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. Supermarket chains and independent markets in six counties – Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, Dutchess, Ulster and Rockland participate in this campaign annually.
Placards, with tear-off coupon pads of $1, $3, $5 denominations are positioned at all cashier checkout counters in the supermarkets. Shoppers tear off a coupon, hand it to the cashier and the donation is added to their food bill. It all begins in September. In Price Chopper stores, Check Out Hunger is featured chain-wide and the program includes two elements which replace the traditional pin-up program:
Round Up Your Change – Guests will be able to round up their change at the register, to benefit the Food Bank.
Food Package Donation – Guests will be able to donate a $5, $10 or $15 food package, simply by telling the cashier that they would like to help feed a family in need, and selecting the package they would like to donate.
It’s so simple and sooooo generous! Thank you.
