Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program?

The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their communities and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each purchase goes to a local nonprofit organization focused on education, civic, health & wellness, hunger relief or military/veterans.

Where can I buy a bag?

Community Bags are available at all Stop & Shop locations. Look for them at registers and on the reusable bag rack. If you can’t find them, just ask a staff member where they are. They’ll be happy to show you! To find the Stop & Shop nearest to you, visit our site. You can also purchase these bags in bulk — they make great gifts for friends, family, colleagues and group members. Show them you care about them, the community and the environment! For information on bulk orders, please contact us at

How much does a bag cost?

Each bag costs $2.50, with $1 of that purchase going to support a benefiting nonprofit in your community.

How are nonprofits selected as beneficiaries each month?

Every month, leadership at each store location chooses local nonprofits to be the default beneficiaries from the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program. The names of the organizations are posted on the reusable bag rack during their benefitting month.
