Meijer recently launched the fall campaign of its signature hunger relief program, Simply Give, across six states in an effort to help local food pantry partners restock their shelves.

During each Simply Give campaign, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card during checkout. The donation will then be converted into a Meijer food-only gift card and given to the local food pantry selected by the store after the campaign concludes.

The fall Simply Give campaign will run through Sept. 24. Simply Give donation cards can be purchased at all 229 Meijer stores and will benefit a local food pantry. Meijer Simply Give donation cards can be found on fixtures near the checkout, as well as in the grocery and pharmacy departments. In addition, Meijer will double match customers’ donations Sept. 1-3. That means for every $10 donation card purchase, Meijer will contribute $20, resulting in a total $30 donation.

Since Meijer began its Simply Give program in 2008, nearly $24 million has been donated to help neighborhood food pantries keep their shelves stocked throughout the year.
