WHY: Fighting hunger is at the heart of Price Rite Marketplace's charitable giving and paired with Feed the Children's vision to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry, they have created an initiative, Price Rite Marketplace: Feeding Minds & Bodies, to provide some of America's most vulnerable children with food, personal care items, books and school supplies throughout the year and help tackle the serious issue of childhood hunger. Price Rite Marketplace and Feed the Children will host eight events in 2018 to address seasonal issues such as lack of food during the summer months, back-to-school, and holiday hunger.
