Hannaford Charitable Foundation Mission

The mission of the Foundation is to invest in creating and sustaining healthy communities in the five-state area of our business. We do so through providing financial support to nonprofit organizations and programs that focus on improvement of the root causes impacting the quality of life for our customers, associates, and neighbors.  Our areas of focus for financial support are Food, Education, and Health.

Healthy Communities – HCF Focus Areas for support:

The foundation supports organizations in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont that focus on one of the following core components of healthy communities:

  • Food – Safe, stable access to healthy food is a critical component of a healthy community. HCF supports programs in longer-term solutions that will ensure safe, stable access to healthy food primarily through regional food banks in the markets we serve.
  • Education – Hannaford is committed to preparing our customers and neighbors for success by helping to deliver strong programs to prepare people through all stages of life for success in education and readiness to enter the workforce.
  • Health – We promote the health of residents in our communities through organizations that provide quality programs focusing on promoting healthy lifestyles and improved care.

In determining which organizations and programs to support, the Foundation considers the impact and outcomes to the community, prior support from HCF, and relative uniqueness of the program versus others in the community. Preference for funding is given to those that have the potential of providing ongoing services for a large segment of our customer base and communities.
