KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 9-year-old girl is among those who have donated to Harvesters – The Community Food Network as part of KSHB 41’s Fill the Fridge campaign.

Emily Kate Rucereto stopped by Price Chopper on Barry Road to donate her birthday money to those who are food insecure.

When asked by KSHB 41 News Anchor Lindsay Shively why she chose to give her money to the campaign, Rucereto said that “it will help people who need it.”

Those interested in following her lead and donating in person can do so at Price Chopper locations throughout the Kansas City metro.

Monetary donations also can be made online.

More information can be found on the Fill the Fridge website.
