ShopRite Cans for Fans


January 11, 2012 by Dana

If you thought I was a masochist crazy before, then finding out that I am taking a 2 credit Cost Accounting class in 2 weeks will only confirm your suspicions.  I mean, Cost Accounting is bad enough (anyone who’s taken it knows what I’m talking about)… but cramming 8 chapters of it into two weeks??  Unheard of.

Yet, here I am.  Up to my ears in fixed, mixed and variable costs.  Half way through the class.  That I started last Tuesday.

Needless to say, you will not be getting a recipe from me today.  I may be crazy, but I physically can’t work, go to class, study, plan a wedding, AND make dinner.  Not possible.  It’s takeout and takeout only these few weeks.

But what I can do is alert you to a great initiative being sponsored by ShopRite throughout the month of January: Cans for Fans.

This year, the Can Can Sale has become extra special with “Cans for Fans” on Facebook, which enables ShopRite fans to get involved in the fight against hunger.

During the month of January 2012, ShopRite will donate one can of food (up to 50,000 cans) to local food banks in the communities it serves, on behalf of every fan on ShopRite’s official  Facebook page.

So what can you do to help??  

Visit ShopRite’s Official Facebook Page and “like” them!  The more “likes” that ShopRite receives, the more cans it will donate to those in need – it’s that simple!

And just for fun,visit ShopRite’s “Get Can Canned” website at, upload a personal photo and become a virtual ShopRite Can Can dancer… here’s mine!

    What an easy way to donate food! Thanks for sharing as there is no ShopRite in our area. And good luck with your course!

    Not gonna lie, Dana, that class sounds awful. I have a vague recollection of those terms from an econ class I had to take in high school. But I’m pretty sure I blocked out what they actually mean. Post-traumatic memory loss.

    Good luck!
