With early school closures and economic hardship facing many families due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the needs of our communities have never been greater and feeding our families has never been more important.
Summer is generally a difficult time for food insecure families when more than 18 million children nationwide lose access to free or reduced-price meals at schools, including the nourishment of milk. However, many families are already struggling to provide for their children, and food banks are stretched thin.
To offer assistance, Price Chopper/Market 32 will once again join forces with American Dairy Association North East in support of Fill a Glass with Hope® to provide fresh milk to local food banks.
During June, National Dairy Month, shoppers at Price Chopper/Market 32 stores across New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Vermont can ‘round up’ their change at checkout to donate and help make milk available to children and families in their local community.
Within the trusted channel of this campaign, 100 percent of all donations will remain local and help deliver gallons of milk to families with children in need in our communities.
