Shaw’s and Hannaford Supermarkets played a major role in making the holidays a little merrier for our Wakefield neighbors in need with holiday food programs that benefited the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry.
Shaw’s made up grocery bags of food items worth $5, $10 and $15 dollars which customers could purchase. Shaw’s was able to collect 4,000 pounds of food from their generous customers.
Hannaford Supermarkets filled boxes of food which contained a variety of items most needed by families, including macaroni and cheese, cereal, oatmeal, hearty soups and vegetables. Hannaford delivered 172 boxes which the pantry then provided to Wakefield residents in need.
“We are incredibly blessed to have these stores on our side as we strive to keep our shelves stocked,” said Maureen Miller, WIFP Director of Operations. “In addition to being so supportive during the holidays, Shaw’s and Hannaford also help throughout the year.”
