Buehler’s to Participate in Campaign to Help Fight Hunger

Buehler’s Fresh Foods to Participate in Campaign to Help Fight Hunger

Wooster, OH – Buehler’s Fresh Foods will participate in the National Grocers Association (NGA) campaign, “Independents Day of Giving”, to help fight hunger by supporting Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization with over 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries nationwide. This includes local Ohio food banks: the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank, the Cleveland Foodbank and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

“We are proud of the outstanding support given to our local Food banks by our customers and employees throughout the year. We are happy to be participating in the NGA National Day of Giving” said Dan Shanahan, the President and COO of Buehler’s.

The campaign will take place during the month of June from Wednesday, June 21 through Saturday, June 24 in all Buehler’s locations. Shoppers will be encouraged to add a $1, $3, or $5 donation to their grocery bill while at the checkouts. Over 2,000 independent grocers have committed to participating in the inaugural “Independents Day of Giving” campaign.

A recent survey by Feeding America found that one in seven people struggles with hunger in the United States. Food banks are often flooded with donations during the winter/holiday months, but many are in desperate need throughout the summer when kids may lack access to school meal programs. Each year, Feeding America food banks supply food to more than 46.5 million people in the U.S., including 12 million children and seven million seniors.
