Hannaford - Guiding Stars Store Tours

Follow the Stars to more nutritious choices on a field trip at your local Hannaford store.


As students explore the store aisles, they become informed shoppers with the help of the Guiding Stars® nutrition navigation system. They sample healthy foods, learn where our foods come from, and read nutrition fact labels to reinforce the benefits of healthy eating.

They’ll begin to understand the roles of the people who work in the various departments and gain insight into Hannaford’s sustainability activities, inspiring kids to also care for the environment!


Through demonstrations and peeks into areas usually just for employees, kids will experience the store in a new way.
