PROVIDENCE — Stop & Shop presented the Rhode Island Community Food Bank with a $67,510.73 check from the grocery chain’s 2018 Food For Friends campaign late last year, and both hope for another successful fundr

aising drive this year.

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank distributes food to Rhode Islanders in need through a statewide network of 155 member agencies. The agencies include food pantries, meal sites, shelters, youth programs and senior centers. Stop & Shop’s annual Food For Friends fundraising campaign raises money for local food relief agencies selected by each Stop & Stop store, as well as regional food bank partners, such as the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

The 2019 Food For Friends campaign kicks off today and runs through July 12. Shoppers can make a donation to the campaign either by donating $1, $3 or $5 at check-out. At self-checkout shoppers can round up their total purchase price to the nearest dollar.
