The seventh-annual SpartanNash Foundation fundraiser has launched to support local food pantries across the Midwest during the holiday season. 

Since 2016, the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based company has raised more than $2 million through annual in-store fundraisers to benefit food pantry partners. In total, this contribution has provided approximately 20 million meals for people throughout the Midwest. Forty-nine million Americans relied on food programs in 2022, according to Feeding America.

“Our mission to deliver the ingredients for a better life includes providing accessible nutrition for those who are experiencing food insecurity,” said Adrienne Chance, SpartanNash SVP of communications and SpartanNash Foundation executive director. “Year after year, we band together with our shoppers and associates to support local hunger relief efforts and help families in need enjoy the holiday season.” 

Through Nov. 5, store guests can make donations of $0.50, $1, $5, $10 at checkout or online through Fast Lane. The SpartanNash Foundation fundraiser proceeds will go to local food pantries in Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. 

“We are thankful for partnering with SpartanNash as they empower us to provide all our neighbors with healthy food access,” said Community Action House CEO Scott Rumpsa. “Over 1,300 families rely on our ‘Food Club’ for food assistance every single week. In times of increasing challenge for many of our neighbors, we’re grateful for partners that come together to ensure everyone can access the good food they need to reach their potential.”
