Price Rite Marketplace and Hormel Make Donation to Food Banks

December 21, 2018
Representatives from local food banks visited Price Rite Marketplace in Bethlehem on Dec. 21 to pick up donations of holiday hams.

Price Rite Marketplace and Hormel donated close to 300 holiday hams to local organizations such as Safe Harbor, Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Lehigh Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania. 

Price Rite Marketplace understands that food insecurity and hunger impacts its communities and neighbors. The supermarket chain this month is also running its annual Check Out Hunger fundraising campaign, which raises money to benefit local food banks in the communities served by Price Rite Marketplace stores across the northeast.

Through Dec. 29, Price Rite Marketplace stores will raise money by collecting donations of $1, $3 or $5 from shoppers at checkout, providing customers with a convenient way to help feed hungry families in their communities. Price Rite Marketplace contributes approximately $500,000 annually to local food banks and pantries.
