Stop & Shop is expanding its partnership with food-waste reduction company Flashfood as the Ahold Delhaize banner rolls out Flashfood's digital marketplace to its Brooklyn and Queensstores in New York.

"Our partnership with Flashfood has been a successful addition to our food waste diversion programs, helping us prevent more than 140,000 pounds of food from ending up in landfills since 2021," said Gordon Reid, president of Stop & Shop, in a statement. "We're proud to deepen our commitment to reducing food waste by expanding the Flashfood program to more stores in the New York City area. Our shoppers in the boroughs can benefit from significant savings on groceries while also helping the planet."

Using the Flashfood app, shoppers can save on fresh items such as meat, produce, dairy and bakery, as well as nonperishable foods and snacks that are nearing their best-by dates. Purchases are made via the app and shoppers can pick up their order from the Flashfood zone located inside the participating Stop & Shop stores:

  • 64-66 Myrtle Avenue in Glendale, Queens
  • 74-17 Grand Ave in Maspeth, Queens
  • 961 East 174th Street in the Bronx
  • 1710 Avenue Y in Brooklyn
  • 625 Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn

 

Flashfood is already available at Stop & Shop stores throughout Rhode Island and in the Bronx at2136 Bartow Avenue. Since launching the partnership in 2021, Stop & Shop and Flashfood have together saved over 140,000 pounds of food from ending up in U.S. landfills, Flashfood said in a statement.

"We've already saved New Yorkers more than $2 million on groceries, and we're excited to make an even bigger impact throughout the city with Stop & Shop," said Josh Domingues, Flashfood's founder & CEO, in a statement. "Expanding further into the Bronx, plus adding stores in Brooklyn and Queens, means more families will have access to affordable groceries while reducing the amount of perfectly good food that ends up in landfills."
