(WBNG)-Wegmans has announced that they will be donating money to help its partner food banks.

According to the Wegmans website, they said they would be donating 4 million dollars to help those who are at risk of hunger during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement on their website they said,

"At times like these, everyone is called on to come together and support one another. One of our highest giving priorities is providing food for people at risk of hunger. The best way to do this is by supporting local food banks that can provide food directly to people in need.
