Hannaford has launched a campaign to fight hunger in communities across the country. To do this, they have established two strategies. The first is to make regular donations of foods that have a long shelf like to food banks across the country in bulk. The second is to donate all foods that are still fit for human consumption but beyond shelf life to Good Shepard associated food banks in the communities of over two hundred Hannaford Super Markets. One of these food banks is the Machias Food Pantry at the Machias Congregational Church.
