Price Chopper Collects Funds to Support Area’s Hungry this Summer

Price Chopper Collects Funds to Support Area’s Hungry this Summer

1 in 6 children in Harvesters’ service area are at risk of hunger

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- June 13, 2022 -- This summer, Price Chopper stores will be collecting donations to help feed children in need through its No School = No Lunch program. Partnering with Harvesters—The Community Food Network, Price Chopper is collecting monetary donations at the register, as well as non-perishable food bins at all 52 locations.

Research shows children consume up to 50 percent of their total daily calories at school during the school year. The No School = No Lunch program aims to offset this imbalance during the summer months when families are in extra need of support.

“Food insecurity is always an issue, but summertime is an especially vulnerable time for low-income families who rely on school meals to nourish their children,” said Casie Broker, Chief Marketing Officer of Price Chopper. "Recent inflation has exacerbated the situation and, as the area’s locally-owned grocer, we’re pleased to help the community feed children in need.”

Price Chopper’s No School = No Lunch program will help fund an array of Harvesters’ childhood hunger initiatives, from the Kids Cafe - which offers meals at parks, libraries, and community centers - to pantries and mobile food distributions.

Donations of $1, $5, and $10 can be made at checkout at all Price Chopper stores starting June 15 through August 16th.
