Stop & Shop, Unilever donate $150K to Feeding America

QUINCY, Mass. — Stop & Shop has teamed up with Unilever to support hunger relief efforts of Feeding America and its local member food banks.

The companies said that they are donating $150,000 to the organization, which will provide more than 1 million meals to families in need.

As part of the donation, Stop & Shop also is hosting Popsicle Parties and Stuff-A-Truck events. Through its Popsicle Parties, Stop & Shop will offer each customer a free Popsicle pop for every $1 they donate; while its Stuff-A-Truck events, which are held at various stores through the fall, invites customers to deliver canned and nonperishable food items to local food bank trucks.

"Stop & Shop is always exploring new ways to support the communities we serve," said Suzi Robinson, manager of public and community relations for Stop & Shop's New England division. "This fall, through our partnership with Unilever, we've identified several ways customers can join us in our effort to fight childhood hunger."
