Local GIANT Food Stores associates volunteered on-site today at the Fresh Connect Bucks County Warminster location. The team helped to set up and distribute fresh produce to the community. Giant also made a very generous donation of $1,050 to the United Way of Bucks County in support of the Fresh Connect Collaborative.
From now through the end of the year, Giant Food Store associates will make donations and volunteer their time to a local nonprofit associated with one of the Ahold Delhaize USA division’s three main charitable missions: feeding the hungry, supporting children and supporting troops. GIANT launched its Season of Sharing at Fresh Connect.
Fresh Connect is a free farmer’s market bringing fresh, healthy food to those in need in Bucks County. The Fresh Connect market returns to the same three locations (Bristol, Warminster, and Ottsville) on the same day at the same time each week, providing reliable and needed food to the 57,000 Bucks County residents facing hunger, 16% of whom are children. Fresh Connect is a collaboration of Bucks County Opportunity Council, Philabundance, Rolling Harvest Food Rescue, and St. Mary Medical Center, with generous funding by United Way of Bucks County.
