MORRISTOWN, NJ – Kings Food Markets will partner with non-profit Grow it Green Morristown to fight against hunger.

 Kings is hosting a Benefit Shopping Event in all their NJ stores the week of July 12th – July 18th, 2020. Shoppers should mention Grow It Green when checking out, and 5% of the sales from your purchase up to $2500 will be donated directly to Grow It Green Morristown.

In New Jersey, nearly 900,000 people are “food insecure,” defined as the lack of access to affordable, healthy food, according to the organization. Through Kings’ Act Against Hunger initiative, Kings is making an important impact in the communities they serve. Along with their customers and partners, Kings donated over 152,000 pounds of food to hunger relief efforts in New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut, providing over 18,000 meals to people in need, they said.
