In addition to the Cupcakes for a Cause event, shoppers can purchase this year’s limited-edition No Kid Hungry reusable shopping bag, featuring the winning artwork from The Fresh Market’s 2015 Design Our Bag Challenge. The specialty grocer will donate 50 percent of the retail price of each bag to No Kid Hungry. The Fresh Market has raised over $757,000 to support the campaign’s effort to connect children in need with nutritious food and teach their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
