Terrance C.Z. Egger, Plain Dealer publisher and president, credited some of the drive’s success to a “Check Out for Hunger” element that raised more than $1 million. Shoppers could donate at grocery store check-out lines.

Harrvest for Hunger organizers said they had to at least match the $2.9 million raised last year to cover growing community needs. This year’s final numbers were announced at a ceremony Tuesday morning attended by more than 200 food-drive volunteers.
