Shopping Together to End Hunger

By Dario Muralles March 5, 2012

Have you ever wondered what might happen if a food retailer collaborated with a manufacturer to help end hunger? Well, just take a look at your new ShopRite in Silver Spring, MD. In a unique partnership with their vendor, partners and local food banks, ShopRite has developed a program that helps feed the hungry in its local neighborhoods.
Since 1999, the ShopRite Partners In Caring program, a community-based, hunger-relief initiative, has partnered with 50 food manufacturers to provide more than $2 million annually to food banks in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Since its inception, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated $28 million to support more than 1,700 charities – food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, child care centers, senior citizen programs, after-school programs and other organizations that help those in need.
This year, the ShopRite in Silver Spring donated $10,000 to the Capital Area Food Bank to support four emergency feeding programs in Montgomery County, putting 30,000 meals on the table for those who are hungry in our community.
According to Christine Magyarits, spokesperson for ShopRite Partners In Caring, “ShopRite is proud to support local charities that help feed the hungry. Helping to provide meals for people in need is just something a good neighbor should do.”
