Evan Engram “Helps Bag Hunger” at Brookdale ShopRite
Evan Engram, New York professional football player and tight-end, joined ShopRite associates to raise awareness about hunger by bagging groceries in Brookdale ShopRite in Bloomfield, NJ.
In recognition of September as National Hunger Action Month, ShopRite stores across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland host annual ShopRite Partners In Caring “Help Bag Hunger” days. Local dignitaries, community leaders and athletes help raise awareness and money to fight hunger and food insecurity by bagging groceries at their local ShopRite stores.
Evan Engram visited Brookdale ShopRite in Bloomfield to meet with fans and bag groceries for customers. ShopRite is partnering with Procter & Gamble, a leader in providing trusted brands to consumers, to raise awareness about food insecurity with Engram’s store visit.
