Stop & Shop donated 32 tons of food (worth more than $100,000) to two regional foodbank partners: Connecticut Food Bank and Feeding Westchester. The call for help came from the food banks serving communities that have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The food donation included staples like rice, canned vegetables, tomato sauce, cereal, soups, pasta meals, peanut butter, beans, potatoes plus macaroni and cheese. The food will be distributed to people in need in Westchester County, New York, and Connecticut. Local media in Connecticut including FOX, NBC, ABC, and CBS covered the community contribution.
