Stratford, Connecticut-based Stop & Shop’s annual checkout campaign, Food for Friends, is partnering with local brewery, Two Roads Brewing, to assist with a charity tasting on June 10.
All donations raised by the Food for Friends campaign at local Stop & Shop stores will benefit the state’s largest food bank, Connecticut Foodshare, and its partner agencies.
To further aid the food bank, Two Roads Brewery and Stop & Shop have teamed up to host a first-of-its-kind charity Beers & Bites tasting on June 10.
“This event is an example of two organizations working together to make a great impact in their community. We are grateful for their continued support of our mission and our vision of a thriving community free of hunger,” said Monica Obrebski, Connecticut Foodshare’s chief marketing and communications officer.
Beers & Bites will offer attendees an assortment of selected Two Roads brews paired with various Stop & Shop private label Nature’s Promise, 1855 Black Angus Beef and Taste of Inspirations appetizers and entrees.
“Food insecurity is an issue for so many across Connecticut and it’s exciting when local companies can come together to build a stronger community network with a goal of helping neighbors in need,” said Maura O’Brien, Stop & Shop’s external communications manager.
“Stop & Shop is proud to support Connecticut Foodshare year-round but working to further combat food insecurity in this unique way with Two Roads is an exciting new approach. We look forward to seeing many community members on June 10.”
Tickets to the charity Beers & Bites tasting are $50 per ticket and quantities are limited. Click here to purchase tickets to the event.
“Both Stop & Shop and Two Roads are built around the members of the Connecticut community. To partner together and give back for all they have given us is truly an exciting opportunity,” said Brian Duprey, senior director at Two Roads Brewing.
“We are honored to work together in a unique way through both the program and our exciting beer dinner, to provide a donation that helps Connecticut Foodshare provide meals to those in need.”
