Wooster, OH – June 3, 2022
“Buehler’s Fresh Foods would like to thank all of our customers and team members who went above and beyond this year in raising money for our community food banks during the Harvest for Hunger campaign. I’m proud to say that this year’s results were one of our best, since we started the campaign 15 years ago. We thank the Akron Canton Foodbank and their outstanding team who work hard to battle food insecurity every day.” Paul Stefaniuk, Vice President of Operations at Buehler’s Fresh Foods.
Buehler’s Fresh Foods raised $161,722.55, which translates into 648,000 meals, through our register campaign and fun employee contests. Everyone involved in this campaign recognizes the continued struggle for folks to put food on their tables due to rising food and fuel prices and how clearly vital the foodbank is to a multitude of families.
The entire Buehler’s team passionately worked together to make this campaign a success for the Foodbanks and all who benefit from their mission.
Cheryl Kerr, Buehler’s Community Relations & Employee Experience Specialist, said, “The store teams did an excellent job with register collections, theme days, raffles, $5 and $10 grocery bags and miscellaneous fundraising. A big thank you goes out to all our customers and employees for their donations and support during this year’s campaign.”
A few facts about the Foodbank:
The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank distributes food and other essential items through its network of more than 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters, children and senior programs and other hunger-relief programs in Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties. Food insecurity affects 1 in 6 individuals and 1 in 4 children.
Buehler’s Fresh Foods has proudly supported the Akron-Canton Foodbank as a Harvest for Hunger participant for the past sixteen years. We want to do our part to end hunger in each of the communities we serve. Our partnership with the Akron-Canton Foodbank aligns with our corporate values and goals, hence our continued relationship. We are an organization committed to putting people first and this campaign is all about taking care of people in need in our communities.
About Buehler’s Fresh Foods:
Buehler’s Fresh Foods grocery store was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. The family moved the business in 1932 to Wooster, and, after four generations, grew to 14 stores serving the northeast Ohio market. In 2017, Buehler’s became an ESOP (employee stock ownership program) with the belief that selling to their own employees was the best way to assure the continuation of the innovative and creative spirit which made the chain a benchmark for independent grocers.
