Community Giving


Rooted in our community

Why do we give? Because it’s the right thing to do.

We feel compelled to help others, especially those who have less than we do. And we’re committed to making a positive mark on our community. Besides our giving mantra being to help everyone eat better tasting food and more nutritious food, we actively contribute time, money, energy and information so we can make this great town where we live and play even better. And our staff is committed to serving in our community: on non-profit boards, coaching team sports and in community organizations like the Chamber of Commerce.

We have been around for a long time and plan to continue to build worthwhile, long lasting relationships within our community. It’s a huge part of who we are as a business and as a community leader.

We prioritize support for non-profits (501 c 3) that focus their improvement of community, health, youth, and or serve our education system. We prioritize our giving to organizations that operate within the same neighborhoods and communities as our stores.

Woodstock, Pomfret, Barnard, Reading, and Bridgewater
