For the 13th Annual Fight Hunger Campaign, Weis Markets began collecting monetary donations at checkout earlier in the year to respond to the tremendous need at food banks in our communities due to COVID-19. Customers donated at checkout by purchasing $1, $3, $5 or $10 vouchers or rounding up their orders to the nearest dollar.
This year, Weis Markets and its customers have donated $1.3 million to regional food banks throughout the communities in which we operate, including a $173,000 donation to the Maryland Food Bank.
The Maryland Food Bank is committed to helping food insecure families, and their need has been unprecedented this year. Monetary donations to the food bank are especially important. The food banks is able to stretch each donated dollar a long way to help maximize the impact of the donation and serve as many people as possible.
