"My class of 24 2nd graders just loved our field trip to our local Stop & Shop. They learned a lot about foods that are healthy to eat and they got to see some of the "behind the scenes" of how a grocery store is run. Thank you."

"Thank you so much for letting our preschool visit. We the teachers and children really enjoyed the trip. Their top 3 best picks were of course touching a lobster, tasting cheese and getting to ring on the register. All in all they loved walking around the store. The next morning the big question was "Are we going back today?"
Terri C. Natick, MA
"It was a very enjoyable time for our toddlers. It was just enough information for them to handle. And out Stop & Shop guide, Lindsay, was great with all the kids! Thanks Stop & Shop."

"Your nutritionist, Julie, was wonderful. She not only was very knowledgeable, but geared her comments to my classroom's age (3-5 year old). She did a fantastic job, despite the attention span of this lively age group. I would highly recommend this field trip to my colleagues. "
