The funds will support food banks year-round, feed children in the summer months, and provide support to emergency food relief programs in times of natural disasters.

The funds were raised from March 15th to 31st, 2018, through the Macy’s Bag Hunger Campaign this year will support 485 foodbanks across the country, including New York City, where Macy’s campaign benefitted St. Francis/Capuchin Food Pantry, Bronx Works, City Harvest, Project Hospitality, Rock Church Community, St. John’s Bread & Life, Center For Food Action, Part of the Solution, Eva’s Village, Black Forum of Co-op City Food Pantry, Hope Community Services, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, and St. Michael’s Church Food Pantry.

In addition, for the second year in a row, Macy’s invited customers to join the cause and round up their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar (up to $.99) and donate the difference to their store’s selected local food bank. Macy’s customers helped raise an additional $1.1 million through this “Make Good Cents” initiative.
