ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Your spare change could make a change, as Foodlink launched its annual Check Out Hunger campaign on Wednesday.

In partnership with 21 area Wegmans stores, shoppers can donate a few dollars or round up their grocery bill while in the checkout line.

The nonprofit says the money raised goes to help fund many of its food-related programs and support its food-banking operations across its 10-county service area. 

The campaign raised nearly $700,000 last year.

The current campaign runs through Nov 28.
