Hannaford commits $25K to Vermont Foodbank
SCARBOROUGH, MAINE — Hannaford Supermarkets announced today its commitment to donate $250,000 to support food banks in five states that are experiencing increasing and unprecedented demand during the widening of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Among the commitments is $25,000 for the Vermont Foodbank.
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. In Vermont, customers can donate to the Vermont Foodbank at the register with a $5 or $10 donation or with a cash donation at a kiosk located at the front of the store.
"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."
In addition to Vermont, Hannaford has made commitments to food banks in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York.
