MCH Meals on Wheels, a non-profit organization that delivers home-cooked, well-balanced meals Monday through Friday to people in need in Knox County, began accepting donations through the Hannaford Giving Tag Program.

When a shopper purchases a $2.50 reusable community bag at any Hannaford store, they can direct a $1 donation to a local non-profit by using the attached giving tag.

Upon purchasing a community bag with the giving tag at any Hannaford, shoppers are directed to:

1. Visit within seven days of their purchase.

2. Remove the scratch-off layer on the giving tag to reveal the unique identifier.

3. Submit their identifier and select the non-profit they would like to receive a $1 donation.

The Hannaford Giving Tag Program, which launched February 2020, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with a goal to make positive change in communities where shoppers live and work.

MCH Inc. “Making Community Happen” is an independent, non-profit community service organization, with a mission to aid individuals — primarily older adults and people with disabilities — to maintain independent, active lives by providing access to affordable housing, meals and other supportive services. They are also the Meals on Wheels provider for all of Knox County.

The MCH Meals on Wheels program is made possible through funding by MCH Inc., Spectrum Generations, United Midcoast Charities and donors. For more information, visit
