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 customers helped us achieve record-breaking success in fighting hunger across the Midwest with their generous donations to the Simply Give program this fall. Collectively with our customers, we nearly doubled our previous record-breaking Simply Give campaign with a donation of more than $2.6 million to neighborhood food pantries across our five-state footprint.
All Meijer stores partner with a local food pantry during the Simply Give campaigns, which run three times a year. It’s important to us, and to our customers, that donations remain in local communities.
The fall campaign began in early August during the Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft and ended in late September. During that time period, our customers donated more than $726,000. That commitment to supporting families in need, combined with a donation from Meijer, made it the most successful campaign since Simply Give began nearly 6 years ago. To date, the program has generated nearly $12 million.
