Price Rite teams up with Feed the Children and The Salvation Army to distribute food and essentials to Hyde Park-area families in need

Keasbey, NJ, 2017-Aug-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — Representatives from Feed the Children, Price Rite and The Salvation Army came together last month at the Price Rite in Hyde Park to help deliver food and other items to 800 area families.

Price Rite Supermarkets partnered with Feed the Children, Nabisco and Red Bull, with support from The Salvation Army, to distribute food and essentials to Hyde Park-area families in need. Each family, pre-identified by The Salvation Army, received a 25-pound box of food; a 10-pound box of basic essentials like shampoo, conditioner, lotion and personal-care items; and books provided by Disney Worldwide Publishing. Families also received an additional food donation from Price Rite including a variety of produce and shelf-stable items.

Two Feed the Children semi-trucks filled with food and essentials were unloaded by volunteers who then packaged and distributed the items to the families who arrived to pick up their care packages.

Fighting hunger in the local community is at the heart of Price Rite’s charitable giving, and the supermarket chain contributes approximately $500,000 annually to local food banks and food pantries to benefit local families in need within the communities it serves. Heading into the third year of its partnership with Feed the Children, Price Rite will host ten events with the charity organization during 2017, donating more than 40,000 pounds of food and other essentials per event as part of the program. Feed the Children, through its network of partner agencies, distributed 105 million pounds of food and essentials – valued at $415 million – worldwide, benefitting 5.4 million people in the U.S. and more than 541,000 individuals internationally, for a total of 5.9 million people globally in fiscal year 2016.
