HANNAFORD COMMITS QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS TO AREA FOOD BANKS

Scarborough, ME—Hannaford Supermarkets announced today its commitment to donate $250,000 to support area food banks that are experiencing increasing and unprecedented demand during the widening of the COVID-19 global pandemic. The monies will be distributed to food banks in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and New York.

Additionally, Hannaford is kicking off a register and store kiosk donation program at all Hannaford grocery stores that will make it easy for customers to donate toward hunger relief. Customers can donate to their community’s local food bank at the register with a $5 or $10 donation or with a cash donation at a kiosk located at the front of the store. (For a list of recipients for the donation and the register donation program please refer to the end of the press release.)

“During these times of uncertainty, it’s important that we all pull together to help one another,” said Mike Vail, President of Hannaford. “Hannaford has a long tradition of nourishing communities and this donation is just one way that we can help extend that care to those who need it the most.”
