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.
