Stop & Shop delivers turkeys to food bank

Posted 11/8/13

PROVIDENCE – Stop & Shop’s Turkey Express trucks this week delivered 1,000 turkeys to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank in time for Thanksgiving.

The delivery is one of eight stops on Stop & Shop’s Turkey Express route throughout New England and 12 across the Northeast.

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank serves more than 68,000 people across the state impacted by hunger and food insecurity. One in three served is a child under the age of 18.

“Rhode Island continues to have the highest level of food insecurity in New England,” says Andrew Schiff, CEO of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. “With such a high demand for donations to local food banks, Stop & Shop’s donation is more important than ever to help local families in need.”

“We strive to be a better neighbor both in and out of our stores and we are committed to fighting hunger in our communities year round,” said Joe Kelley, president of Stop & Shop New England.

“We understand that the holidays can be particularly difficult for families in need, so we encourage everyone to share a meal and give thanks this holiday season. Together, we can help support the families who depend on hunger relief organizations when they need it most.”

This November, Stop & Shop will donate more than 21,000 turkeys to local food banks throughout the Northeast with its Turkey Express program. Deliveries will run through Thanksgiving.
