Price Chopper Donates $186,524 to fighting hunger in Kansas City

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. – Wednesday, February 24, Price Chopper presented a check for $186,524 to Harvesters – The Community Food Network as part of their winter hunger campaign, Check Out Hunger.

From Nov. 1, 2015 to Jan. 3, 2016, Price Chopper shoppers were able to donate while paying for their groceries through Harvesters’ Check Out Hunger campaign. For every dollar donated, Harvesters can provide three meals to people in need. That translates to more than 550,000 meals that Harvesters can supply through their network of food agencies.

“We are incredibly thankful for the work that Harvesters does for our communities,” said Casie Broker, Director of Marketing, Price Chopper. “and we are proud to partner with them in the fight against hunger in Kansas City.”

Price Chopper has partnered with Harvesters for Check Out Hunger for several years, but this winter was by far the most successful campaign to date. Altogether, the 50 Price Choppers in the Kansas City Metro increased their donations by more than 23 percent over last year – an increase of more than $35,000.

Broker attributes this success to Price Chopper’s loyal customer base.

“We have the best customers,” said Broker, “It never fails. When we run a campaign to raise food or donations for those in need, they come through with flying colors.”
