NEW YORK – Telemundo 47 / WNJU, NBC 4 New York / WNBC and Stop & Shop to hold large-scale food drive to support eight tri-state food banks during food drive initiative Feeding Our Families / Feeding Our Families.

This will take place at almost 200 Stop & Shops in the three states on Saturday, June 1, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The community can visit any of these locations to donate non-perishable food and personal hygiene items or round up the total of their regular purchases to the nearest dollar at the register, which will be donated to the local food bank.

To date, the food collection campaign Feeding Our Families has generated more than 520 tons of non-perishable donations through three previous campaigns, including last year.

Viewers can stop by any of these locations to donate non-perishable food and personal hygiene items to help their neighbors in need. Visit telemundo47.com/alimentar or NBCNewYork.com/fooddrive for a map of store locations.

WHAT ITEMS ARE NEEDED

Non-perishable food and personal hygiene items, including most in-demand items such as baby diapers, are most in need. For a sample “shopping list” of the most requested non-perishable items, visit telemundo47.com/alimentar or NBCNewYork.com/fooddrive. Volunteers will also distribute this list to shoppers visiting all participating Stop & Shop stores on Saturday, September 9.

“The rising cost of food, transportation and utilities has negatively impacted our entire community, including local food banks. This additional financial burden has become yet another obstacle in the fight against hunger, so that our food drive Feeding Our Families is even more timely,” said Cristina Schwarz, President and General Manager of Telemundo 47. “A small donation on June 1 will have a big impact on the lives of our friends and neighbors, and we encourage all of our viewers to join us, as they can, for this important community effort.”

“Hunger is a year-round problem that isn’t going away. Our food bank partners also tell us that this is the time of year they need help the most. That’s why we created Feeding Our Families, a massive day-long food drive that generates tons of non-perishable donations for our neighbors in need,” said Eric Lerner, President and CEO of NBC 4 New York. “Supporting the work of food banks in the three states has long been a community priority for our WNBC team. “We are very happy to roll up our sleeves again and get to work.”

HOW STOP & SHOP HELP

Stop & Shop is one of the largest retail supermarkets in the tri-state, and the brand has been partnering with area food banks and hunger relief organizations for many years. In 2024 alone, Stop & Shop has donated more than $2 million in cash contributions to eight participating food banks in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Stop & Shop continues to expand the Stop & Shop School Food Pantry Program, which works directly with schools from preschool through college to establish and support school food pantries. Currently, Stop & Shop supports more than 230 school pantries throughout its territory, including more than 130 in the tri-state area.

“We are excited to join forces once again with NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47, in this tremendous multi-state effort to help combat hunger in our local communities,” said Jennifer Barr, Director of External Communications and Community Relations for Stop & Shop. “Ensuring our neighbors have access to healthy food and personal care items is important to us – and if we all work together, we can make a big difference for those in need in the tri-state area.”
