Scan-Away Hunger at Grocery Checkout

Syracuse, NY:  With the scan of a coupon at grocery checkout, shoppers can provide a meal for men, women and children who might otherwise go hungry in Central New York. The Rescue Mission’s 25th annual Scan-Away Hunger campaign invites shoppers at Wegmans and other participating stores to donate $2.24 at checkout to feed a hungry neighbor.

The Rescue Mission provides three free meals every day of the year to men, women and children who might otherwise go hungry. In Syracuse, the Mission serves nearly 700 hundred meals a day, and nearly a quarter million meals every year.

Scan-Away Hunger coupons are available at checkout in participating stores through December:

  • 10 Wegmans in Central New York
  • Green Hills in Nedrow
  • Nichols in Liverpool
  • Nojaim in Marcellus

“Your $2.24 provides a full meal for a man, woman or child who might otherwise go hungry,” said Rescue Mission Chief Executive Officer Alan Thornton. “Thanks to our wonderful retail partners, shoppers have an easy way to end hunger in our community.”

Scan-Away Hunger coupons are also available at Rescue Mission Thrifty Shopper stores (www.ishopthrifty.org/locations/). For more information on Scan-Away Hunger, go to www.scanawayhunger.com.
