In honor of World Milk Day, Stop & Shop partnered with New England dairy farmers to turn its Cranston, Rhode island store parking lot  into a milk drive for local Rhode Island hunger relief agencies and school districts. Stop & Shop donated more than 8,000 half gallons of whole and 2% milk in an effort to address the growing demand for nutritious food for those in need.

Over 40 agencies participated in the milk event, including Providence Public Schools, YMCA of Greater Providence, Cranston Public Schools, Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket, North Kingstown Public Schools, and Central Falls Community Center.  The donation also supported local New England dairy farmers in their effort to send as much milk as possible to the growing number of families in need.
