In Honor of Hunger Action Day on September 10th, Stop & Shop donated nearly 5 tons of fresh produce to the Friendly House in Worcester to benefit local families in need. Stop & Shop associates from the area Worcester stores and Friendly House staff filled 1,000 bags with a variety of produce including cabbage, zucchini, yellow squash, plum tomatoes and carrots.

Established in 1920, Friendly House is a multi-service center that works with entire families, both immediate and extended, across four major service areas: Social Services, Feeding Programs, Housing Services and Youth Programs.
