What:

As part of their ongoing sustainability efforts, Brown's Super Stores - who operates eleven ShopRite Supermarkets in the Philadelphia area - will be hosting a community food collection. This non-perishable food drive will be formally kicked off at ShopRite of Fox Street on Tuesday, August 25th at 10:00 am as they focus on the daunting issue of hunger in Philadelphia.

The food drive will be conducted in partnership with Philabundance, Drexel University, Cabrini College, and the Vetri Foundation, as we strive to decrease the food insecurity in the city and its surrounding communities. This collection will supplement the hundreds of pounds of fresh surplus food Brown's donates on a weekly basis.

The ShopRite locations listed below will each have a bin located in the front of the store where the community can donate unopened non-perishable food. All food collected through Friday, September 18th will be donated to the local area food banks.
