The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which launched in May 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal                                                                                                                  to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

The Plymouth Community Food Pantry was selected as the November beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop located in Bristol. The Food Pantry will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during November.
Please tell your friends and family about this great opportunity to help the Food Pantry continue to move forward in its mission to END HUNGER within our community.

The Plymouth Community Food Pantry would like to thank all of those who have been so kind to our mission over the past 6 months. The Covid-19 Pandemic has affected everyone in one way or the other.  Yet, individuals, businesses, and civic organizations have shown their spirit of giving.  Monetary donations and food donations, along with a strong Board of Directors and committed volunteers, have enabled the Pantry to have one of the most productive summers ever.  Shelves are well stocked, and refrigerators and freezers are full.  Clients are continuously expressing their appreciation for healthy and nutritious offerings they receive upon each visit.  No matter how small or large your contribution, you have made a difference.  In the words of Mother Teresa, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”
