Diversity & Inclusion

Fred Meijer once said, “I want to leave the world in a little better shape than when I entered it.” We believe he achieved that dream, which continues to live on through our commitment to enriching lives in the communities we serve. Fulfilling this goal begins with a focus on serving people – in the workplace, in our stores, and in our communities.

“People respond best when treated as individuals – especially when treated with dignity and respect.”
-Fred Meijer

One way we bring this to life is by supporting and partnering with people, organizations and structures that positively impact underserved and underrepresented communities in our footprint.
