To help spread the message about hunger in our community, RoNetco Supermarkets invited special honorary baggers to donate their time to bag groceries in their ShopRite stores for the annual ShopRite Partners in Caring Bag Hunger Day.

In the ShopRites of Byram, Newton, and Franklin, local dignitaries, police officers, fire fighters, and EMS volunteers donated their time to raise awareness for this important cause, all while bagging groceries with a smile. Customers were full of words of encouragement for these honorary guests as they worked diligently and efficiently at the end of the registers.

Since its inception in 1999, ShopRite Partners in Caring has donated nearly $44 million dollars to more than 2,000 charities, including local food banks right in our area. During the Bag Hunger Day events, and at ongoing happenings throughout the month of September, cashiers have been accepting monetary donations and asking customers to “round up for hunger” to raise awareness and funds to help stock the shelves of local food pantries.

It only takes one team, one purpose and one passion to make a difference for those in need in our communities. This program aligns perfectly with ShopRite’s Purpose Statement of Caring deeply about people, helping them to eat well and be happy.
