ShopRite customers were treated to some special baggers when Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia, along with Councilman Nick Joanow, bagged groceries Wednesday at Brookdale ShopRite as part of ShopRite’s “Help Bag Hunger” initiative for National Hunger Action Month.

Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka also helped bag hunger at ShopRite of Newark, to the delight of customers. The local officials helped ShopRite with its goal to raise awareness for the issue of hunger.

Nearly 50 million Americans, including more than 16 million children, suffering from food insecurity. Twenty percent of the value of all the groceries bagged by the guest baggers went to benefit the company’s Partners in Caring program.
