Stop & Shop Donates $9,900 To Island Harvest As Part of ‘Community Assist’ Promotion With The Islanders

New York Islanders alum Steve Webb (1996-2003) and team mascot Sparky joined associates from Stop & Shop as the supermarket presented a check for $9,900 to Island Harvest Food Bank as part of Stop & Shop’s “Community Assist” Program.

As the official supermarket of the NY Islanders, Stop & Shop makes a donation to Island Harvest Food Bank for every home game assist the Islanders make in a season. With 198 total assists this past season, Stop & Shop will donate $9,900 – the equivalent of nearly 20,000 meals for people facing food insecurity across Long Island.

Island Harvest Food Bank receives very little government support and relies on the generosity of organizations like the New York Islanders and Stop & Shop, both longtime partners in the fight against hunger and food insecurity on Long Island. Stop & Shop’s Meat the Needs, Food for Friends, Holiday Box programs, and direct support are a few of the many ways the company supports anti-hunger organizations in the communities it serves. Likewise, the New York Islanders provide direct financial support and conducts food drives and hunger awareness programs supporting Island Harvest Food Bank’s mission to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island.

In addition to the check presentation, Webb, along with several Stop & Shop associates and Island Harvest Food Bank’s volunteers, participated in a food sorting operation at the food bank’s Melville headquarters.
