Meijer Simply Give
The hallmark of the Meijer hunger relief efforts is its year-round Simply Give program, which has helped local food pantries keep their shelves stocked since November 2008.
This signature program has generated more than $65 million thanks to the continued generosity and support of Meijer customers, team members, and food pantry partners who are committed to helping feed hungry families.
How to Give
During each Simply Give campaign, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the local food pantry selected by the store.
Meijer customers shopping online using Meijer pickup or home delivery can also purchase Simply Give donation cards as an add-on to their orders.
Each Meijer store partners with a local food pantry during campaigns to ensure that all donations generated remain within local communities.
The Simply Give program runs year-round to help keep food pantries in our communities well-stocked no matter the season. The partnering food pantries are rotated throughout the year to ensure broader outreach in our communities.
Instead of determining what food to donate to our food pantry partners, the Simply Give program allows them the flexibility to choose the grocery items best suited for the families they serve. And, this includes baby food, formula, diapers, and wipes.
