PHOTOS & VIDEO: In honor of the official day of National Hunger Action Month, Mayor Menashe Miller this afternoon joined ShopRite in honoring the cause. Governors across six States – including New Jersey – declared September 21st as the ShopRite Partners In Caring Day, in which dinitaries across the States ‘help bag hunger’ at their local ShopRite store to raise awareness and funds for food banks in their community.
Mayor Miller presented a plaque to ShopRite recognizing their efforts in the program, and also bagged groceries for customers, in a way of showing support for the multi-State program.
Since its inception in 1999, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated more than $27,000,000 to local food banks that support 1,700 charities in providing food assistance throughout the Northeast.
Welcoming the Mayor, was ShopRite’s Kosher Experience manager Ephraim (Freddy) Chase and other store managers.
