ShopRite and Cheerios Expressions of Hunger Contest-Help Others!

ShopRite has joined forces with Cheerios to sponsor a contest called Expressions of Hunger. This local video contest encourages every day people -- from classrooms to choirs, families to friends -- to creatively share their perspective on the issue of hunger through song, dance, poetry or dramatic reading.

You could be one of six (individuals or groups) to be featured on a limited-edition Cheerios box and have your video featured on the ShopRite Partners In Caring website (
