SOMERS POINT, N.J. -

A year-round community-based initiative has started providing funding to help feed the hungry in local communities.


Shop-Rite grocery stores across several states, and in South Jersey, took part in the "Shoprite Partners in Caring" day.


During the event on Wednesday, participants were asked to donate an hour of their time to help bag groceries, and throughout the day cashiers were collecting donations to help fill the shelves of local food banks and raise awareness for those in need.
