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 22nd at participating stores throughout the five boroughs, placards with donation coupons are placed at the cash registers where customers can help their fellow New Yorkers by donating a few dollars during checkout.

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

How it Works:



Shop at any participating grocery store. See below for map of stores.


Select A Donation Amount

Select a donation coupon on the placard — in denominations of $1, $3, and $5— located at the store’s check-out counter.


Check Out!

Hand the donation coupon to the cashier and your coupon will be scanned. The donation amount will then be added to the total of your shopping experience. Each coupon has a UPC bar code on the back (just like the other items in your shopping cart).

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

Can't make it to a store? You can still help!

You can make a difference—anywhere, anytime—with a contribution of any size. Every $1 provides 5 meals for New Yorkers in Need.
