Meijer is a family-owned company serving the needs of families at each of our stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
With the help from our Team Members and customers, we’re able to make the community a better a better place to live, work and play.
As we grow, we follow a simple philosophy established by our grandfather and father 80 years ago: “take care of your customers, team members and community … and all of them will take care of you, just like a family.”
We invite you to visit this site often to learn about how much our Simply Give campaign is helping our neighbors, about our sponsorship that is bringing the LPGA back to Michigan and more. Welcome to our Meijer Community!
Meijer in the Community
Meijer President J.K. Symancyk participated in Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin’s “Go Orange” campaign to celebrate Hunger Action Month. During the month of September, Feeding America food banks nationwide raise awareness about hunger relief. Although we don’t have stores in the Milwaukee area yet, we believe it’s never too early to become a good neighbor. Earlier this year, Meijer donated two semi-trucks, trailer and 132,510 pounds of food to FAEW.
As a retailer with a mission to feed people, hunger has become an important philanthropic focus. Our signature hunger relief program, called Simply Give, encourages customers to help restock the shelves of our food pantry partners.
Thanks to the continued support of our customers, team members and food pantry partners, the Simply Give program has generated more than $9 million to help feed hungry families in the communities we serve since November 2008.
The fall Simply Give campaign will run through Sept. 27. Click here to learn how to get involved in the Simply Give program.
Our Partners at Work
Produce for Kids and Meijer recently kicked off the third annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign to educate families on the benefits of healthy eating and raise money for nutrition education through Jump with Jill, a music-based health program for kids. Since 2002, Meijer has raised more than $1 million for local children’s organizations.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Meijer again this year to support nutrition education in schools in the Meijer market,” said John Shuman, president of Produce for Kids. “Through the Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign, we can help families make better food choices in their local grocery store and educate children on the important of nutrition while in school.”
To help increase the donation, Meijer shoppers are encouraged to add more produce to their grocery carts through Sept. 27. There are 11 fruit and vegetable suppliers participating in the program and making a consumption-based donation to Jump with Jill.
Shoppers should be on the lookout for the Produce for Kids display, featuring The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ in the produce section of all Meijer stores to pick up a shopping list of participating produce companies, along with easy, healthy recipes for their family.
