ShopRite of East Hartford -- making hunger a priority!

The staff at ShopRite of East Hartford works hard each week to set aside food that goes directly to shelters, pantries and community kitchens in their community. In 2014, this store donated 72,843 meals worth of food through Foodshare’s Retail Pick-up Program. What makes them truly remarkable partners in the fight to solve hunger is that in addition to the food, they also find other ways to support Foodshare. Last year they organized a family carnival with proceeds to benefit Foodshare, contributed last minute cash and turkey donations in November to help us meet our goal, attended the annual Convoy of Caring, and helped to prepare and distribute meals for local community kitchens. The management and staff at ShopRite of East Hartford make helping hungry people in the community a priority all year long and Foodshare is so grateful for their enthusiasm and support.
