WEST CHESTER (September 26, 2017) – Couponing can help families save money on their monthly groceries, but did you know it can also help fight hunger?

An upcoming, free couponing workshop, hosted by Jen Freeman and Jen Morris as featured on the TLC television show Extreme Couponing, will teach local residents how to utilize coupons for maximum value at supermarkets while passing their savings onto those in need through donations to local food banks and food cupboards.

At the workshop, set for Thursday, October 12 at 7 p.m. at the West Whiteland Township Building, Freeman and Morris, known as “The Couponing Angels,” will share their secrets to massive savings and giving back to the community.

State Senator Andy Dinniman, who helped found the Chester County Gleaning Program (now the Chester County Food Bank) two decades ago, will discuss the importance of supporting local food banks and other ways residents can help fight food insecurity in our region.

“This is a great example of the community using creative and innovative methods to fight hunger in our region,” state Senator Andy Dinniman said. “Many of these coupons not only result in savings to the customer, but also additional food products through buy-one, get-one deals. All we ask is that in return for learning these couponing skills, attendees make an effort to donate some of their yield to those in need.”

The 90-minute seminar, sponsored by the Philadelphia Inquirer and organized by the Chester County Food Bank and the MLK CommUNITY of the greater Kennett Area is free and open to the public.

***However, registration is required as seating is limited.

Participants can register at www.philly.com/xtremecoupon.

In addition to teaching you all the tips and secrets on how to easily and consistently save $100s every month on your grocery bill, the workshop will feature free prizes and giveaways.

“Despite being one of the wealthiest regions in the state and the nation, hunger continues to impact individuals, families, children, and senior citizens in Chester County,” Dinniman said. “This is just another way you can get involved in assisting those in need and learn to save your family a few bucks at the same time.”

The West Whiteland Township building is located at 101 Commerce Drive in Exton (adjacent to the Main Street at Exton Shopping Center).
