Foodshare joins ShopRite to "Bag Hunger"

Earlier this week, Miller Family ShopRite in Enfield--a longtime partner in the fight against hunger--hosted their annual “Help Bag Hunger” event to raise awareness for Hunger Action Month. Foodshare President James Arena-DeRosa joined other local dignitaries to bag groceries while cashiers collected donations for the ShopRite Partners In Caring Fund, which helps fill the shelves of local community food banks.

You can make a donation through ShopRite's Partners In Caring campaign, to benefit Foodshare, at any of our nearby stores--Bristol, Southington, West Hartford, Canton, East Hartford and Manchester.

Since its inception in 1999, the ShopRite Partners In Caring Program has donated more than $40 million to 1,700 hunger relief agencies in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland. ShopRite’s commitment to this cause is unwavering and employees work year-round to raise awareness of the issue of hunger for the citizens of our local community.
