SUNBURY, Pa. — Weis Markets on Wednesday announced that it will launch its sixth annual Fight Hunger Program to run throughout Hunger Action Month this September. The program works to provide food and monetary donations to local food banks and emergency food providers in Weis’ 165-store service area.
“Each September, we ask our customers to consider donating to local food banks in all of the markets we serve,” stated Kurt Schertle, EVP sales and merchandising for Weis Markets. “Food insecurity is a growing challenge in our country, and we are committed to helping our food bank partners meet this rising demand. We are grateful to our customers for their continued support.”
Customers are able to donate shelf-stable items, as well as purchase $3, $5 and $10 vouchers during the checkout process. All of the proceeds will be donated to area food banks in the form of gift card donations to help fill gaps in food supplies. Weis also offers convenient, pre-filled Fight Hunger donation boxes containing pasta, sauce, fruit, vegetables, tuna, cereal and soup — all for less than $10.
