WHY:                   Fighting hunger is at the heart of Price Rite Marketplace’s charitable giving and paired with Feed the Children’s vision to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry, they have created the initiative, Feeding Minds & Bodies. The campaign’s goal is to provide some of America’s most vulnerable children with food, personal care items, books and school supplies throughout the year and help tackle the serious issue of childhood hunger and ensure healthy childhood development. Price Rite Marketplace and Feed the Children will host eight events in 2019 to address seasonal issues such as lack of food during the summer months, back-to-school, and holiday hunger. Since the inception of its partnership with Feed the Children in 2015, Price Rite Marketplace has donated approximately 1.7 million pounds of food and essentials.
