CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - All Schnucks stores locations will be hosting a hunger relief campaign on Saturday, June 24 from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. called "Shop Out Hunger."
Shopping wish lists will be distributed to customers as they enter the store. All non-perishable food donations are welcome.
The most needed items include:
- Peanut butter
- Canned meats (tuna, chicken, beef)
- Canned fruits and vegetables
According to Schnucks Director of Community Relations Joanie Taylor this is the time of year when people need food the most.
"Food insecurity and childhood hunger-especially in summer months when they lack access to school breakfast and lunch programs-are real issues in the communities that we serve, and as a company, we have pledged to tackle them head on," Taylor said.
