Glenn Hansen and Tonya Walley accepted the donation on behalf of the Community Food Bank of N.J. Steven Hilder, community relations advocate of the Wakefern Food Corp., served as the MC of the recognition ceremony.
“We are proud to partner with Wakefern and General Mills to provide support for the local food pantries and charities that serve as a lifeline to many in our communities,” said Lawrence Inserra, Jr., chairman and CEO of the family-owned grocery store chain. “As always, our customers and associates are true heroes for their generosity and efforts in combating hunger with us.”
In addition to ShopRite of Lyndhurst, three other Inserra Supermarkets stores are being recognized for their fundraising efforts. 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. Since the inception of Wakefern’s Partners In Caring program in 1999, more than $44 million has been donated to 2,400+ charities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
