The Stop & Shop store on Newington Road has been chosen as a participant in ‘Bloomin’ 4 Good,’ the floral program designed to fight hunger in local communities.
Brighten up your day with a bouquet of flowers that fights hunger in the local community! West Hartford Food Pantry has been selected by local Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting hunger organization in the Stop & Shop Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for the month of March!
The Stop & Shop Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, which launched in February 2021, is an easy way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a hunger organization local to the Stop & Shop in which it was purchased. According to Feeding America, every $1 donation to a local hunger organization can provide 10 or more meals to someone in need.
As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Stop & Shop location a different local hunger organization is selected to benefit from the sale of the Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet. West Hartford Food Pantry was selected as the March beneficiary by local store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 176 Newington Road, West Hartford. West Hartford Food Pantry will receive a $1 donation for every $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet purchased at this Stop & Shop location in March.
“Flowers can make someone’s day, brighten up a room or spread a smile,” said Suzanne Oslander, Community Partnership Manager. “Now they can fight hunger too! We are thrilled to be chosen to benefit from this unique and impactful Stop & Shop Program, as the demands of those in need are higher than ever this year.”
West Hartford Food Pantry is part of the Town of West Hartford’s Town That Cares program that is solely dependent upon on donations. Over 10,652 bags of groceries are distributed through the West Hartford Food Pantry each year.
