CHOP Out Hunger awarded $15,000 Community Grant from American Eagle Outfitters Foundation to support local school students

CHOP Out Hunger, a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating childhood hunger in Northeastern Pennsylvania, is thrilled to announce a $15,000 grant from the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation. This generous funding will directly support the expansion of CHOP’s in-school pantry and backpack programs within area school districts.

“We are incredibly grateful for the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation’s commitment to fighting childhood hunger,” said Dani Ruhf, Founder/CEO of CHOP Out Hunger. “We currently have an extensive waitlist, with this funding, we will be able to feed hundreds of kids.”

CHOP’s in-school pantry program provides students with access to food items throughout the school week. The backpack program ensures children have nutritious meals over the weekends and during school breaks when regular meal programs are unavailable.

This grant from the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation is critical as childhood hunger rates continue to rise across the country. Thanks to their support, CHOP Out Hunger will be able to close the gap and ensure no child goes hungry.
