More than 250 food pantries across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin recently received more than $2.3 million as part of our most recent Simply Give campaign.
The 2021 Meijer LPGA Classic raised $1.1 million of the spring total.
We’re pleased to share the gratitude we have received from our food pantry partners with our customers who made this donation possible through their support of the program.
“We continue to be so honored to be a recipient of the Meijer Simply Give program and the LPGA Classic! This support allows us to support important items for our programs that are difficult for us to procure in any other way. Thank you so much!”
-Greta, Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes
“I knew our donors at [the Kettering Meijer] were generous, but I surely am surprised with this amount! Our food kits going out to our pantry clients are sure gonna get a boost in variety and types of food content... more meat and dairy coming soon! Great news!”
-David, Keystone Cupboard
“Oh my, we are so grateful for this. It makes such a difference for our food pantry and the people of our community. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, keep on doing what you're doing to support the community. It is amazing.”
-Darla, Gasburg Baptist Church
“Your contributions to our pantry have really changed the way we’re able to serve our clients. We know now that if we don’t have enough of an item, we have your Meijer cards to make the purchases we need… Thanks so much for all you’re doing for us and so many more!”
-Ruth, St. Christine’s Food Pantry
For those interested in supporting local food pantries on their weekly shopping trip, the fall Simply Give campaign is currently running and donations made on Saturday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Aug. 28 will be double matched, effectively tripling their donation.
