Check-Out Hunger

Check-Out Hunger is Food Bank’s largest annual supermarket and grocery store campaign where New Yorkers can Shop and Fight Hunger! Starting October 21st at participating stores throughout the five boroughs, donation coupons are placed at the cash registers where customers can help their fellow New Yorkers by donating a few dollars during checkout. You can also Check-Out Hunger online, thanks to our friends at Thrive Market — shop their website from November 1st through the 30th and you’ll have the chance to donate to Food Bank during checkout.

How it Works:



Starting October 21 through the end of the year, shop at any of the participating grocery stores below, or online at Thrive Market (November 1 – 30). Be sure to check this page often, as we’ll be adding more stores throughout the campaign!


Select A Donation Amount

When you get to the check-out counter, select a donation coupon from the placard at the register — in denominations of $1, $3, and $5.


Check Out!

Hand the donation coupon to the cashier and your coupon will be scanned — each one has a bar code on the back, just like the other items in your shopping cart. The donation amount will then be added to your shopping total. 

Feel good knowing that your donation makes a tremendous impact! Your tax-deductible contribution will appear on your receipt.

Special Thanks To Our Grocery Store Partners

100% of donations go to Food Bank For New York City, and every $1 donated helps provide 5 meals for New Yorkers in need!
