Simply Give helps neighborhood food pantries stock their shelves to feed local families that are struggling. Food pantries continue to see new faces, as families work to balance daily expenses. Our continued giving is vital to the success of local food pantries in this time of need. Your $10 donation will be turned into a Meijer gift card and given to a local food pantry.
In addition to your donation, the Meijer family will give $1 million dollars to distribute among the many food pantries in our communities this year. Since 2008, Meijer and our customers together have donated over $3 million dollars.
Purchase your $10 donation card from the Simply Give displays near the checkout, or give now online.
Meijer donates more than six percent of its net profit annually to a large group of charities and organizations throughout the five states where its stores are located. The Simply Give program was created as another way to ensure support goes to the communities where Meijer stores are located.
