Price Chopper raises nearly $200K for Harvesters' Check-Out Hunger program

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. – Price Chopper is proud to announce that it will be donating $197,923 to Harvesters – The Community Food Network as part of the 26th annual Check-Out Hunger campaign that took place over the most recent holiday season.

From November 6, 2017 through January 7, 2018, Price Chopper accepted monetary donations at all Kansas City-area stores. Customers were able to donate to Harvesters by adding $1, $5, $10 and $20 to their ticket.

“Kansas City is always so generous, but this year our customers really out did themselves,” said Casie Broker, VP of Marketing, Price Chopper. “This is the highest total we’ve seen since we began the program with Harvesters.”

In addition to setting a single year record, this year’s total also means that Price Chopper Shoppers have donated more than $900,000 in the past five years to help fight hunger in Kansas City. Since 2013, Price Chopper stores have raised $900,761 to benefit local food pantries.

Check-Out Hunger is Harvesters’ largest annual fundraiser, which helps feed the hungry throughout its network of more than 620 nonprofit agencies. For every dollar donated, Harvesters' network can provide three meals to hungry families, children and seniors in our community.
