Community Leaders Joined Effort to Raise Hunger Awareness

LYNDHURST, N.J., Sept. 29, 2016 – In its continuing effort to give back to the community and raise awareness of food insecurity, Inserra Supermarkets hosted “Help Bag Hunger” events in each of its 22 stores, including ShopRite of Lyndhurst. During the fundraiser, community leaders volunteered to bag groceries for customers as ShopRite of Lyndhurst associates collected monetary donations. All proceeds are earmarked to aid in filling the shelves of food banks and charities.

“This event draws attention to the reality that people in our neighborhoods are going hungry, and we want to assist them as best we can,” said Ruzzo. “We appreciate the kindness of the Inserra family and all that they do for our community in Lyndhurst.”

Inserra Supermarkets, which is a member of the Wakefern Food Corp. cooperative, is widely acknowledged as a good corporate citizen, dedicated to improving the lives of local residents and those in need. Every September in recognition of National Hunger Awareness Month, the family-owned grocery chain participates in ShopRite Partners in Caring’s “Help Bag Hunger” events.
