Stop & Shop launches program to aid in hunger relief

QUINCY, Mass. — Customers in the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut area will be able to help raise money for hunger relief when they shop at their local Stop & Shop.

The retailer has launched its Healthy Ideas Food for Friends progam, which enables customers, through Aug. 19, to donate $1, $3 or $5 at their local Stop & Shop to help support hunger relief organizations within their local communities as well as regionally. Customers also have the option to purchase a $10 charity box filled with Healthy Ideas Stop & Shop brand items. The charity boxes are given directly to each store’s local food pantry partner.

“Stop & Shop is committed to promoting health and wellness in the markets we serve,” said Joe Kelley, president, Stop & Shop New England Division. “Hunger is year round. There are thousands in need of nutritious meals – not just during the holiday season. We’re proud to help our hunger relief partners bring healthy food back into our communities.”
