Stop & Shop Begins ‘Local Produce For Locals In Need’ Program

Stop & Shop three years

Quincy, Massachusetts-based Stop & Shop has begun its annual “Local Produce for Locals in Need” program, donating locally grown, fresh vegetables to help combat summer hunger in children and families throughout August.

Through this program, communities in need will have access to fresh, local produce like eggplant, corn, cabbage, peppers and cucumbers as Stop & Shop works to increase access to healthy, nutritious foods across its footprint.

The brand will be kicking off the program by donating $5,000 worth of New Jersey-grown produce to the regional food bank Fulfill, which services Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Nearly 300 clients of Fulfill will be able to drive up to its Neptune City location on Aug. 12 to receive grocery essentials and produce from Stop & Shop employee volunteers. Additional distribution events will be held throughout the month in locations including Quincy and Roxbury, Massachusetts, and Brentwood and East Islip, New York.

Stop & Shop highlights local produce throughout all of its stores each year during August, helping to sustain local farms and businesses while supplying customers with a selection of regionally sourced items and local flavors across produce, seafood, baked goods and more local favorites. Stores will feature signage throughout aisles highlighting featured farms Stop & Shop sources its local selection from.

Stop & Shop supports communities by fighting hunger, supporting American troops and investing in pediatric cancer research to help find a cure. It is an Ahold Delhaize USA Company and employs 58,000 employees and operates more than 400 stores throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
