Feeding Our Neighbors in the Hudson Valley

About ShopRite

Starting on Sunday January 21st until Saturday, February 3rd, 2018, 27 ShopRite supermarkets in the Hudson Valley will be asking shoppers to make non-perishable food or cash donations at checkout. Thanks to last year’s shoppers, $92,000 in cash donations and more than 23,000 pounds of food were collected to ensure that hungry New Yorkers in the Hudson Valley had enough to eat. This year, our goal is to surpass last year’s results.
