WEST NYACK, N.Y. – With hunger affecting more than 48 million Americans – including 15 million children – one local supermarket chain stepped up recently to provide assistance to local food banks and charities.

Inserra Supermarkets held “Help Bag Hunger” events at each of its 22 stores Friday in celebration of Hunger Action Month, according to a statement from the grocer.

Community leaders volunteered to bag groceries for customers during the fundraisers – which included one at the West Nyack ShopRite store – while store staff members collected donations.

According to grocery chain, all proceeds will go directly to local food banks, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior citizens programs and others who work to feed the hungry.

Among the organizations to benefit from "Help Bag Hunger" events at Rockland County's five ShopRite stores was People to People , the county's largest food pantry, according to a statement. The local nonprofit provides assistance to 14,000 households annually.

The Inserra event was organized by the supermarket’s ShopRite Partners in Caring initiative, which has provided more than $40 million in charitable assistance since its inception in 1999.

ShopRite Partners in Caring works with 50 food industry manufacturers to alleviate hunger in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
