MONROE, CT — Bouquets sold at the Stop & Shop at 228 South Main St. in Newtown this February will put food on the tables of Monroe residents in need.
Every $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a hunger organization local to the store in which it was purchased — and Newtown’s store chose the Monroe Food Pantry as February’s beneficiary.
“We are thrilled to be chosen to benefit from this unique and impactful Stop & Shop program, as the demands of those in need are higher than ever this year,” said Julie Banks, coordinator of the Monroe Food Pantry.
According to Feeding America, every $1 donation to a local hunger organization can provide 10 or more meals to someone in need.
Stop & Shop launched its Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet program last year. For information, visit stopandshop.bloomin4good.com.
