Bottom Dollar Food Customers and Associates Help Provide 200,000 Meals Through Its Spring Hunger Has a Cure Campaign to Benefit Feeding America ®

May. 22, 2013

SALISBURY, N.C. — Bottom Dollar Food customers and associates raised more than $25,000 through its latest “Hunger Has A Cure” Campaign, which supports the Feeding America® network of local food banks. Feeding America will use the funds to help provide more than 200,000 meals to those in need. For every $1 donated, Feeding America helps provide eight meals.

“We are proud to help provide Feeding America with the funds to distribute 200,000 meals beginning in June,” said Sherrii Webb, manager of community relations for Bottom Dollar Food. “This will enable them to provide meals to families whose children typically depend on school lunches as a food source.”

The successful two-week campaign, which ran April 3 through April 16, allowed customers to donate in $1 and $3 increments at the register upon checkout. Proceeds will be distributed to support food banks 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, offers funding for food banks and contributes approximately 500,000 pounds of food donations annually to Feeding America.
