Wegmans shoppers are encouraged to help community members in need during the annual Check Out Hunger campaign, which ends Dec. 3.
The drive raises funds for Foodlink to help alleviate food insecurity and address the root causes of hunger in the Rochester region. Shoppers can make donations at the checkout line. Check Out Hunger raised $680,816.62 over a five-week period in 2016.
Foodlink distributes food at low cost for hundreds of emergency food providers throughout its service area, and reaches 200,000 individuals annually through its food banking operations and dozens of food-related programs. Visit foodlinkny.org for information.
