Saratoga County Senior Nutrition Bag Program to Fight Hunger

Saratoga County Senior Nutrition Bag Program to Fight Hunger

BALLSTON SPA — The Saratoga County Office for the Aging has been selected by local Hannaford store leadership in Ballston Spa as the benefiting organization in the Fight Hunger Bag Program for the month
of November. 

Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the local Hannaford.

Donations made through this program to the Saratoga County Office for the Aging will directly benefit the office’s Senior Nutrition Program, which provides healthy meals to participating seniors throughout Saratoga County.

The Senior Nutrition Program helps Saratoga County seniors remain independent while providing those individuals with daily nutritious meals. In-house Dining gives seniors the opportunity to socialize with others in their community while Home Delivered Meals serves those who are primarily homebound. 

The Hannaford Fight Hunger Bag Program is an easy way for shoppers to give back to the local community and the environment as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $2.50 reusable Fight Hunger Bag purchased sends a $1 donation to an organization local to the Hannaford in which it was purchased. During the month of November, the Saratoga County Office for the Aging Senior Meals Program will receive $1 for every Fight Hunger Bag purchased at the Ballston Spa Hannaford location.

As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Hannaford location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable Fight Hunger Bag.
