Meijer raises millions for food banks

One of West Michigan’s biggest employers just helped out in a big way.

Meijer stores all around the Midwest generated $7.6 million for different food pantries, including many here.  The money is from the store’s holiday ‘Simply Give’ campaign, during which customers can buy 10 dollar “Simply Give” donation cards.

Some of the pantries that benefited include Church of the Servant Pantry, which was gifted nearly $32,000; St. Alphonsus Food Center, which was gifted more than $23,000; and Resurrection Life Church, which was gifted more than $18,000.

One Good Thing to Meijer and all the customers who bought those “Simply Give” donation cards.

Here’s a full breakdown of local stores and the pantries they helped:

  • At the Cascade Meijer, $31,970 was generated for Church of the Servant Food Pantry.
  • At the Knapp’s Corner Meijer, $23,160 was generated for St. Alphonsus Food Center.
  • At the Lowell Meijer, $21,970 was generated for Flat River Outreach Ministries Food Pantry.
  • At the Caledonia Meijer, $21,590 was generated for Streams of Hope Food Pantry.
