The Greater Lawrence Community Action Council’s weekly food pantry has been selected by the North Andover Stop & Shop as the July beneficiary of its Bloomin’ 4 Good Program which donates money to fight hunger in the community.
Every month at every Stop & Shop location a different local hunger organization is selected to benefit from the sale of the Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker. The Greater Lawrence Community Action Council will receive a $1 donation for every $10.99 Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet purchased in July at the Stop & Shop located at 757 Turnpike Street, North Andover.
“We are very grateful to Stop & Shop for making a commitment to fighting hunger and for selecting GLCAC’s food pantry to benefit from the program in July,” said Evelyn Friedman, Executive Director of GLCAC. “The need for our weekly food pantry tripled during the pandemic, and especially in the summer months, GLCAC and other organizations that fight hunger need the community’s support.”
GLCAC’s food pantry provided fresh food to more than 3,600 people in 2020. The pantry it open to the public every Tuesday at 4 p.m. at 305 Essex Street, Lawrence.
