The Stop & Shop Bloomin' 4 Good Program is designed to fight hunger in local communities with every floral bouquet purchased. In February, every $10.99 Bloomin' 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold at the West Hempstead Stop & Shop supports = $1 donation to our Food Pantry.  According to Feeding America, every $1 donation to a local hunger organization can provide 10 or more meals to someone in need.

Let's Fight Hunger Together. One Bouquet at a Time!
