DEFIANCE — The effects of the downturn in our economy are being felt in West Central and Northwest Ohio, where the number of families needing assistance to keep nutritious food on the table is on the rise. In response to this critical need, Chief Supermarket is sponsoring Good Neighbor Day at all store locations on Tuesday. This is the sixth annual Good Neighbor Day at Chief. More than $190,000 has been donated to local food pantries since 2009.
On Tuesday, Chief will donate a percentage of sales to support local food pantries. Customers can also choose to donate $1, $3 or $5 when they check out at the register. Suggested non-perishable food items will be displayed just before the registers for customers who would like to purchase and donate food directly to the pantries.
