Families serving families...
As family owned and operated businesses, ShopRite stores are committed to helping neighbors in need throughout the communities served by their stores. That’s why in 1999, we established the ShopRite Partners In Caring program, a community-based, hunger fighting initiative that supports more than 2,200 charities. Since its founding, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated more than $48 million to soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, senior citizen centers, and other organizations that are on the front lines of fighting hunger.

At ShopRite, you’re not just filling a grocery bag. You’re helping to fill empty plates for thousands of hungry families in your community. Every time you purchase products with the ShopRite Partners in Caring shelf tag, you support the brands that support our fight against hunger.
Thanks to these brands, nearly $3 million is donated annually to food banks and local organizations that work to alleviate hunger in our neighborhoods.

ShopRite Partners In Caring Responds to the COVID-19 Crisis
Help Them Help Others
Keasbey, NJ (April 10, 2020) – Wakefern Food Corp., along with its cooperative members – who own and operate supermarkets across nine states – announced it will donate one million dollars to regional food banks to help meet the dramatic increase in demand for food and essentials during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The donation will be divided among 30 food banks across the nine-state trading area of supermarket banners ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace and The Fresh Grocer.
“It’s so important for us to support the food banks that are experiencing increased need and demand during this crisis,” said Joe Colalillo, chairman and CEO of Wakefern Food Corp. “In these uncertain times our members remain committed to supporting the communities our stores serve and will continue to help in the fight against hunger by working with our food bank partners.”
The $1 million donation is the continuation of Wakefern and ShopRite’s long history of addressing food insecurity through its support of regional food banks and those in need. The company’s ShopRite Partners In Caring Fund, a community-based, hunger-fighting initiative, has donated $50 million to more than 2,200 charities over the last two decades.
In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, Wakefern also donated ShopRite trailers to help move hospital equipment to pop-up field hospitals in the state, and this week the company donated respiratory protective masks to New York and New Jersey hospitals to provide much needed protection to medical personnel on the front lines.
