Price Rite Joins Feed the Children to Help Families in Need

April 20, 2016
Price Rite, in partnership with Feed the Children and PepsiCo and with support from The Salvation Army, helped distribute food and essentials to 800 Revere-area families in need on Monday.

Each family received a 25-pound food box from Price Rite packed with produce and a variety of shelf-stable products; a 10-pound box of basic essentials like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and personal-care items; a box of assorted Avon products, and books. In addition, community partners were on site to provide information and resources for social and other services available locally to families.
 
Fighting hunger in the local community is at the heart of Price Rite’s charitable giving, and the supermarket chain contributes approximately $400,000 annually to local food banks and food pantries to benefit local families in need within the communities it serves.

Heading into the second year of its partnership with Feed the Children, Price Rite will host eight to ten events with the charity organization during 2016, donating more than 40,000 pounds of food and other essentials per event as part of the program. Through its network of agencies, Feed the Children distributed more than $344 million in food, essentials, educational supplies and medicine, impacting close to 9 million people in the U.S. and more than 4.9 million individuals internationally, for a total of 13.9 million individuals globally in fiscal year 2014.
