Simply Give – CANAL WINCHESTER MEIJER on Meijer Drive
The hallmark of the Meijer hunger relief efforts is its Simply Give program, which has helped neighborhood food pantries keep their shelves stocked since November 2008. This signature program has generated nearly $32 million, thanks to the continued generosity and support of Meijer customers, team members and food pantry partners who are committed to helping feed hungry families.
How to Give
During each Simply Give campaign, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Givedonation card upon checkout at the Canal Winchester Meijer on Meijer Drive. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to our Food Pantry during specific, designated times.
The Simply Give Campaign for Fall 2017 is designated for the PCMA Food Pantry of Pickerington. The campaign runs through September 16th, with double match days on September 1st and 2nd (where Meijer donates $20 for every $10 you donate).
Where Your Donation Goes
Your $10 donation helps a neighbor make ends meet.
Each Meijer store partners with a local food pantry during campaigns to ensure that all donations generated remain within local communities.
The Simply Give program runs three times a year to help fulfill the needs of our food pantry partners when they need it most: Spring, Fall and Holiday. The partnering food pantries are rotated to ensure broader outreach in our communities.
Instead of determining what food to donate to our food pantry partners, the Simply Give program allows them the flexibility to choose the grocery items best suited for the families they serve in their communities. And, this includes baby food, formula, diapers and wipes.
