KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Harversters Community Food Network received a donation large enough to pay for more than 750,000 meals last week thanks to a donation from Price Chopper.

The Kansas City-area grocery chain donated $250,000 to the area’s largest food bank, which will help meet a growing demand for food.

Shoppers are also able to join in the effort by donating at grocery store checkout registers. Donations will be accepted through April 30.

“We’re proud to partner with Harvesters to meet our community’s growing need,” Price Chopper Chief Marketing Officer Casie Broker said in a release. "There’s never been a more important time for all of us to work together to help our neighbors."

More information about the effort is available on Price Chopper's website.

We've created a Facebook group, We're Open Kansas City, where members of the community can post businesses serving their community.
