“Family meals bring so many benefits. The Dinner Daily makes having family meals not only easier, but more affordable too,” said Laurin Mills, Founder and CEO of The Dinner Daily. “Stop & Shop recognizes that it’s not easy to put a healthy meal on the table night after night.

By providing this program, Stop & Shop is giving 30,000 of their customers an easy and time-saving solution, at no cost! We are so pleased to be working with them on this timely program.”
