Bottom Dollar Food Launches "Hunger Has a Cure" Campaign to Benefit Feeding America® and Its Local Food Banks

Apr. 3, 2013

SALISBURY, N.C. — Bottom Dollar Food launched its "Hunger Has a Cure" campaign today to support Feeding America® and its network of local food banks. The two-week campaign, which allows customers to donate in $1 or $3 increments at the register, runs through April 16 and will help feed local families in need.

Customers can support the "Hunger Has a Cure" campaign by adding a monetary donation of their choice to their total grocery bill at the register. These funds will then be donated to Feeding America, which is able to help provide eight meals per every $1 donated. Funds raised will go to support local food bank summer feeding programs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Ohio, in the communities where Bottom Dollar Food stores operate.

Through efforts such as this, Bottom Dollar Food raises community awareness of hunger needs, funding for food banks and contributes approximately 500,000 pounds of food donations annually to Feeding America.

Last year, Bottom Dollar Food's "Hunger Has a Cure" campaign donated $46,000 and approximately 5,000 pounds of food to help families seeking food assistance through the Feeding America network. Bottom Dollar Food serves as a strong corporate citizen in the communities in which it operates.
