Prince Frederick, Maryland – In an effort to alleviate hunger in the local community, the Prince Frederick Giant Food store has chosen Calvert Meals on Wheels (CMOW) as the beneficiary of the Giant Food Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for the month of January. Customers can contribute to fighting hunger through this program by purchasing specially designated bouquets.

Giant Foods introduced the Bloomin’4Good Program in July 2021. Under this initiative, a different local hunger organization is selected each month at every Giant Food location to benefit from the sale of the Bloomin’4Good Bouquet. For January, CMOW was chosen by the Prince Frederick Giant Food store, which is located at 655 Solomons Island Road in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Throughout the month, CMOW received a $1 donation for every $12.99 Bloomin’4Good Bouquet sold at this particular store.
