Price Chopper Launches Fill a Glass With Hope/Fill a Place With Promise Campaign – Money Raised for Local Food Banks


Price Chopper grocery stores will be raising money for local food banks as the grocery chain has begun their two-month long campaign called Fill a Glass with Hope/Fill a Plate with Promise. The campaign is a partnership between Price Chopper/Market 32 stores and the Northeast American Dairy Association, Garelick Farms, and local food banks. The campaign will run through June 30th.

Customers will be asked when checking out if they would like to round-up their total at the register. Money raised will be going to local food banks with funds to purchase milk and other nutritious foods.

Money raised at the Cortlandville store will go towards the Food Bank of Central New York.

Price Chopper says once school lets out for summer break, over 22 million children lose access to free or reduced-price meal programs. The campaign is designated to help get milk and food items for those who may miss it during the summer season.

“The American Dairy Association continues to go above and beyond in its efforts to bring fresh milk to those in need,” said Pam Cerrone, Price Chopper/Market32’s director of community relations. “We are proud to support their work in helping local families, especially during these times of increased food insecurity.”

The American Dairy Association is leading the way to bring fresh meals to families in need. Milk is one of the most requested items at food banks, yet it is rarely donated. Raising funds through grants, individual donors and corporate sponsors, the American Dairy Association keeps 100% of all donations local to help deliver milk and essential nutrition to families with children in need in the community.
