ESSEX JUNCTION — The Essex CHIPS Youth Food Shelf was selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of August.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2014, 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 Essex CHIPS Youth Food Shelf was selected as the August beneficiary by store leadership at the Hannaford located at 21 Essex Way in Essex Junction.

The Youth Food Shelf will receive a $1 donation every time a $2.50 reusable Fight Hunger Bag is purchased at this location during August, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

Shoppers can also support the Essex CHIPS Youth Food Shelf by purchasing a reusable Fight Hunger Bag online via Hannaford-To-Go.

“We are delighted to receive this support from Hannaford,” said David Voegele, Executive Director of Essex CHIPS. “Over the past year, the Food Shelf has seen an increased demand for food and basic necessities by youth and their families. Without this support, we may not be able to meet this need.”

Essex CHIPS is a non-profit based in Essex Junction. Founded in 1986, Essex CHIPS works with community members to deliver substance abuse prevention campaigns and activities that promote healthy living for over 30 years. Learn more about Essex CHIPS by visiting www.essexchips.org.
