I love picking out flowers for our dining room table every couple of weeks. They add cheeriness to the space in such a simple, yet elegant way. Living so close to Stop & Shop, it’s easy to swing by the floral section and pick some up during a grocery shopping trip. And now, the decision to buy a bouquet will make me feel even better because I can support a cause close to home.

Sharing the Harvest Community Farm, a division of YMCA Southcoast, has been selected by local Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting hunger organization in the Stop & Shop Bloomin' 4 Good Program for the month of August.

The Stop & Shop Bloomin' 4 Good Program, which launched in February 2021, is an easy way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular shopping routine. A portion of every Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a hunger organization local to the Stop & Shop in which it was purchased. According to Feeding America, every $1 donation to a local hunger organization can provide 10 or more meals to someone in need.

As part of this ongoing program, a different local hunger organization is selected to benefit from the sale of the Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet every month at all locations. Stop & Shop Sharing the Harvest Community Farm was selected as the August beneficiary by local store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 25 Faunce Corner Road in North Dartmouth. Sharing the Harvest Community Farm will receive a $1 donation for every $10.99 Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet purchased at this Stop & Shop location in August.

Ashley Brister is the Farm Director of YMCA Southcoast and she commented on the organization being selected.

“Flowers can make someone's day, brighten up a room, or spread a smile,” Brister said. “Now they can fight hunger too! 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.”

Brighten up your day with a bouquet of flowers that fights hunger in the local community.
