With the generous help of shoppers across the Island, Bethpage-based King Kullen raised $23,000 for Long Island Cares during its annual ‘Check Out Hunger’ campaign.
“The need for emergency food supplies on Long Island was never greater than in 2020,” said Joseph Brown, executive vice president of King Kullen. “King Kullen and Wild by Nature have been proud to support Long Island Cares for many years and remain committed to fighting hunger on Long Island.”
In 1997, King Kullen became the first supermarket chain to participate in the food bank’s campaign, in which customers can make a donation when checking out at the grocery store.
“King Kullen and Wild by Nature have made a meaningful difference in the fight against hunger,” said Paule Pachter, chief executive officer of Long Island Cares. “Their customers continue to generously support our mission and we are forever grateful for their support all these years.”
