Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Campaign donates $1.19 million in cash and products to hunger-relief organizations in the Northeast

Scarborough, Maine, 2016-Jul-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Hannaford Supermarkets recently donated 4,000 cases of food to hunger-relief organizations in the Northeast, the final installment of $1.19 million in cash and product donated to food banks, pantries and meal programs through the Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Campaign.

The donations come at a time of year when food donations typically are in a lull, and were generated during a program held during the 2015 holiday season. Hannaford helps Fight Hunger has raised $6.5 million since it began in 2008.

“Hannaford is proud to partner with our customers in helping to provide nutritious food to our neighbors who are struggling financially,” said Eric Blom, Hannaford spokesman.  “By working together, we can make sure that no one in our community need go hungry.”

The Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Campaign had three parts:

• Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Boxes: Customers purchased boxes of food staples for $10 and chose whether to have the box delivered to the local pantry or donated it personally.
• Register Donation: Customers donated money to their state food bank, in $5 increments, at the register.
• Buy One, Give One: Hannaford donated specific products identical to those items purchased by customers during a four-week period.

Each Hannaford store determined what local food pantries to support. Stores competed with one another to encourage donations, and those supermarkets with the highest level of giving receive additional cash donations from Hannaford to be contributed locally.

The annual Campaign is an extension of the work that local Hannaford stores and distribution centers engage in daily. Hannaford donated more than 20 million pounds of rescued food to Northeast hunger relief in 2015.

About Hannaford Supermarkets
Hannaford Supermarkets, based in Scarborough, Maine, operates 189 stores in the Northeast. Stores are located in Maine, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Hannaford employs more than 27,000 associates. Additional information can be found at www.hannaford.com.

Megaman Energy Saving Bulbs Rated as Best Buy in November Which? Report

20% of the cost of most domestic electricity bills is from lighting. Although energy-saving light bulbs are more expensive to buy than ordinary bulbs they can last up to 15 times longer, depending on the type of the bulb you buy. Changing saves energy and thus money.

The November 2009 ©Which? report on Megaman® GSU111d 11w Dimmerable® (fully dimmable with standard dimmers) had this to say:

“Test score 75%. Megaman® GSU111d Dimmerable® Warm White 11W.

Pros. One of the best bulbs for starting up, this one produces a good amount of light quickly and light output meets the manufacturer’s claim. It lasts well, too – we test bulbs for up to 8,000 hours, and every one of the Megaman® bulbs lasted the duration. It handles frequent switching on and off well and can be used with dimmer switches.”

With many traditional light bulbs disappearing from the shops for good, now is the time to change to more energy-efficient lamps & bulbs.

In September the phase out of traditional bulbs started with 100w clear and most pearl/frosted wattages being discontinued, all others will go over the next few years.

The humble light bulb is dead….. to be replaced by more efficient lighting such as compact fluorescent lamps — known as CFLs, or energy-saving light bulbs.

The light output of older compact fluorescent lamps reduces significantly with age. Now is a good time to replace your old energy saving bulbs as well as replacing any traditional style bulbs. GW supplies has a wide range of energy saving bulbs and because they can buy in bulk they can offer excellent prices.
