As the official supermarket of the NY Giants, Stop & Shop presented a $50,000 check to its NY Metro regional food banks at Saturday's NY Giants/Jets football game at MetLife Stadium. Stop & Shop made a commitment to donate $150 for every First Down the NY Giants made during last year's football season. "It is our corporate responsibility to give back to the communities in which we serve and support the hunger relief efforts of our food banks," said Arlene Putterman, Manager of Public and Community Relations at Stop & Shop New York Metro Division. Stop & Shop will continue the First Down Donation program to the food banks throughout the 2013-14 football season.
