Independent grocers, and wholesalers across the nation join together with the National Grocers Association and ROFDA to help end hunger and raise community awareness by supporting Feeding America® and local hunger-relief organizations. Together, the independent supermarket industry can have a real impact in supporting the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization with an easy-to-execute fundraising campaign. The campaign, which enables customers to donate $1, $3 or $5 increments at the register, will run through the month of June, highlighting June 21, the first day of summer, as a “Day of Giving.”
We all know that hunger knows no season. We need everyone to spread the word about this worthwhile program on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, using #GrocersCare17. Together, our industry can make a massive impact on the fight to end hunger. We can show the world that Grocers Care!
