Check Out Hunger Campaign Raises Nearly $225,000
SOUTHERN TIER (WENY) -- This year's Hunger Relief campaign raised nearly $225,000 for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.
Check Out Hunger runs between January and March each year. During that time customers can add a few bucks on to the total of grocery bills at Wegmans stores, that goes directly to local food banks.
The overall 2014 checkout scanning campaign raised more than $970,000 at 24 Wegmans stores across the Northeast. That's a five percent increase over the winter 2013 total.
