Hannaford Charitable Foundation
Hannaford Supermarkets has a long history of supporting the people and the communities which we serve through volunteerism, donations, and community leadership. To build upon the long history of Hannaford charity, the Hannaford Charitable Foundation (HCF) was formed in 1994, and over the past 10 years, the Foundation has given over $12 million to support nonprofit organizations. The Hannaford Charitable Foundation is one of a number of ways in which Hannaford Supermarkets supports its communities, including United Way support, the Hannaford Scholarship program, in store promotions, as well as specific programs such as Hannaford Helps Hunger and local community events and sponsorships.

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.
