QuickChek is making a month-long commitment to help feed area hungry families in need by donating $0.25 for every “Thanksgiving Everyday” sub it sells from now through November 30, 2021 to the Check-Out Hunger fundraising campaign, benefiting those in need during the upcoming holidays.
The new, limited-time-only, QuickChek subs will satisfy Fall comfort food cravings: The Thanksgiving Everyday Sub features no-antibiotics-ever turkey, savory stuffing, cranberry relish, and homestyle gravy.
“Thanksgiving is more than a day of thanks, it’s a season of thanks where we can help those in need during these difficult times as the holidays approach and the pandemic continues,” said QuickChek Vice President of Marketing & Operations Don Leech, whose company has received numerous awards for food service innovation and for giving back to its communities.
The timing could not be more important. More than 42 million Americans are food insecure, which means they don’t know if they have enough to feed themselves and their families, according to Feeding America. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey estimates that more than 1.2 million of those in need live in the Garden State, including nearly 400,000 children.
QuickChek has raised $858,000 for local food banks during the seven years it has been a Check-Out Hunger campaign partner. QuickChek’s support is year-round. The iconic c-store chain recently raised $58,000 through a Coin Drive to support local community food banks and the neighborhoods it serves.
Company executives, support center personnel and local store team members volunteer at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Fulfill NJ, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, Long Island Cares, Island Harvest, and America’s Grow-a-Row.
These efforts have an immediate impact. QuickChek team members packed 200 cases of meals during a volunteer shift at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey this spring and the company’s senior management team harvested enough produce at America’s Grow-a-Row in Pittstown, NJ this summer to supply 12,780 pounds of produce.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Murphy USA, QuickChek has 159 store locations throughout New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island, which have remained open during the pandemic to meet people’s needs for fresh food, products and services in a safe shopping environment, whether it’s in-store, mobile ordering through the QuickChek Rewards app, via Curbside Pickup, or delivery through DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats.
