Zallie Family Markets and ShopRite of West Deptford donate to Feeding America food banks

This past Friday, the Zallie Family Markets and ShopRite of West Deptford welcomed representatives of Feeding America, Kellogg Co. and Kellogg mascots to the store to cast a light on the issue of hunger.

As part of Kellogg’s Better Days Promise, ShopRite and Kellogg are donating a total of $100,000 to 10 Feeding America food banks in communities where ShopRite stores operate, allowing them to purchase nearly 1 million meals.

ShopRite and Kellogg presented a $10,000 check to Feeding America at the ShopRite of West Deptford and nine other ShopRite stores across the region — ensuring that every community receives the help they need.

Kellogg’s Better Days Promise aims to create better days for 3 billion people by 2030. Since 2015, Kellogg has fed more than 252 million people facing hunger, including more than 5 million children, through feeding programs.

In addition to donating 1 million meals to local Feeding America food banks, ShopRite is selling special-edition Rice Krispies cereal boxes with an opportunity for customers to win free cereal for a year.
