Looking ahead, Stop & Shop announced a new three-year commitment to distribute $6 million in ‘‘Fighting Child Hunger’’ grants through its Our Family Foundation.

‘‘Stop & Shop wishes to thank our generous customers, dedicated associates, and our giving vendor partners who help us make a difference every day in our communities,’’ Joe Kelley, president of Stop & Shop’s New England division, said in a statement.

Stop & Shop operates more than 400 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, and New Jersey. In Massachusetts, the chain has 131 stores.
