    Meijer Simply Give
    Jul 3 – Oct 1 all-day
    Meijer Simply Give

    Meijer is a family company who is focused on enriching lives in the communities we serve. Thanks to our generous customers and a strong commitment from our food pantry partners, Simply Give has continued to be successful in feeding hungry families in our local communities. The program has generated more than $71 million in food donations throughout the Midwest since its inception in November 2008.

    In our continued deep-rooted hunger relief efforts, we will be kicking-off the Fall Simply Give Campaign this coming July. The campaign will run a total of 13 weeks from the dates of Sunday, July 3, 2022, through Saturday, October 1, 2022.

    Your partnering Meijer store for this campaign will be the following location: 3195 Geier Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45209-5009

    • During the upcoming campaign, the Double Match Day opportunities will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2022, and Saturday, September 10, 2022.
    • For every $10 Simply Give card purchased on these dates, Meijer will provide an additional contribution of $20, bringing the total to $30 for a single customer purchase.
    • Purchases up to $5,000 across the double match days, will be matched by Meijer up to a maximum donation of $10,000 per pantry/campaign.

    The sole purpose of the Simply Give program is to help our food pantry partners feed the growing number of hungry families in the communities we serve. Our goal is to diligently work to be good stewards of these generous contributions by ensuring they are only used to purchase food items to stock our valued pantry partners shelves.

    Food insecurity continues to be on the rise in the communities we serve, which makes our commitment to the cause vital. Thank you for joining us as we work to help end hunger. We couldn’t do this without your support and partnership!
