In its first-ever Check Out Hunger campaign, Wegmans Lancasterwith the support and generosity of customers and employees, raised more than $36,000 to fight hunger in the local community. On April 8, the Wegmans Lancaster team presented the Lancaster Council of Churches Food Hub and the Water Street Mission each with a check for $18,038. 


During last winter’s checkout scanning campaign at 30 Wegmans stores in Massachusetts, Buffalo and the Southern Tier of New York, and parts of Pennsylvania, hunger relief donations hit $1,242,557. Check Out Hunger allows customers to donate $2, $3, $5, or any other amount at checkout with 100 percent of the proceeds going to each store’s local food bank.  


“Every dollar counts in the fight against hunger, and we can’t thank our customers and employees enough for helping us reduce the hunger that exists right in our own neighborhoods and communities,” said Linda Lovejoy, Wegmans community relations manager. “Our annual Check Out Hunger campaigns are proof that communities thrive when we all work together.”
