Welcome to the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program!


This program is designed to make it easy for shoppers to give back to their local communities while supporting the environment.

Each time a shopper purchases the $2.50 Community Bag at your selected Hannaford location your non-profit will receive a $1 donation, unless otherwise directed by the Giving Tag.

Shoppers can now purchase the reusable Community Bag on Hannaford-To-Go! Any online sales of the Community Bag at your selected store location for your selected month will automatically go to your non-profit upon purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Hannaford Helps Reusable Program?

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their community and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each Community Bag purchase goes to a local non-profit in need. Donations from Community Bag sales support civic, education, health & wellness and military/veterans organizations.

How are non-profits selected as beneficiaries each month?

Every month, leadership at each store location chooses a local non-profit to be the default beneficiary from the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program. This organization’s name is posted on the reusable bag rack during their benefiting month. We encourage you to go into your selected store location(s) and introduce yourself to the store manager to see how you can work together to promote your benefiting month!

If we have been selected as a monthly beneficiary, do shoppers need to use the Giving Tag attached to the bag to send the $1 donation to us?

No. If you have been selected as the monthly beneficiary at a particular store location, the $1 donation will automatically go to you upon purchase. There is no need to use the Giving Tag attached to the bag to send the $1 donation to your organization. The Giving Tag is only to redirect the $1 donation to a different non-profit, other than the one selected to benefit for the month.
