ACME, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger launched their Kicking Hunger campaign on Tuesday, April 15th at the ACME Bala Cynwyd store.

From now until May 15, the month-long campaign will encourage community members to show support in two ways: by purchasing a pre-made $10 bag of groceries at any ACME store or by donating a designated amount at ACME registers.

On Tuesday, ACME’s Jay Schneider, the produce sales manager, Joe Larario, the assistant produce sales manager, and Doug North, the ACME Bala Cynwyd store director, hosted the children from the Casa Del Carmen’s Green Light Food Pantry who began a six-week healthy food challenge where they will try one new produce item a week. Food journals were handed out to the children and each child was able to pick out the first food item for their journal and they all went home with a bag full of healthy foods.

The final week of the challenge will conclude with a field trip to Jose Garces’ Luna Farm, an all-organic 40-acre farm in Ottsville, PA.
