Since 2003, The Food Bank has joined with local grocery stores, retailers, vendors and merchants to Check Out Hunger from October 1 to December 31.

The Food Bank and our partners in the business community receive generous donations from folks at registers across the four counties of Western Mass.  The small donations of $1, $3 and $5 add up quickly to make a real difference in the lives of hungry families in our neighborhoods and towns. For every $1 donated to The Food Bank of Western Mass., we are able to provide 3 meals to help our neighbors in need.

At participating ShopRite stores you can choose to round up your change or purchase food packages valued at $5, $10 and $15 to be donated to The Food Bank as part of Check Out Hunger.
