Stop & Shop Family Foundation (formerly Our Family Foundation) has been a long-time partner in supporting the work of the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. Since 2013, they have supported the Food Bank’s BackPack Program in eight school districts throughout the Hudson Valley. The Foundation focused its support in 2016 to support the BackPack Programs in Newburgh and Poughkeepsie’s elementary schools. Cumulatively, Stop & Shop Family Foundation has funded the distribution of 35,000 bags of food to needy children, the equivalent of 210,000 meals.
Additionally, the retail operation (Stop & Shop) partners with the Food Bank annually on its “Food for Friends” campaign and Feeding Our Families food and fund drives. Over the past 21 years, Stop & Shop and its Foundation have donated over $1.1 million to the Food Bank.
We are deeply grateful to Stop & Shop for everything they do to assist us and those we serve.
