Harvest for Hunger Campaign begins today at E&H Family Group stores: Buehler’s Fresh Foods and ACE Hardware

Harvest for Hunger is a cooperative effort of Ohio Foodbanks and takes place every February/March. All Buehler’s Fresh Foods locations will be actively supporting this campaign which runs now through Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016. Joining the campaign this year will be ACE Hardware locations under the E&H Family Group umbrella.. Customers at both Buehler’s and ACE may donate $1, $5, $10, or any amount they wish at the checkout.

“We want to assure our customers that their donations will stay local,” stated Dan Shanahan, Buehler’s President and COO. “They can view the list of local member agencies in their community, such as food pantries, shelters and other hunger-relief programs, benefiting directly from their Harvest for Hunger donation.”

Scott Buehler, E&H Hardware President and COO added, “ACE Hardware is proud to join Buehler’s in the effort to fight hunger. Working together, we can achieve great things to make a difference for our neighbors and friends.”
