SpartanNash hunger relief drive benefits food bank

GRAND RAPIDS – Together with its store guests and company associates, the SpartanNash Foundation’s scan campaign to provide hunger relief raised $260,000 to support local food pantries and food banks. During the 12-day hunger scan, store guests at any participating SpartanNash-owned retail store or fuel center in eight states had the opportunity to donate $1, $5 or $10 at checkout, with 100 percent of dollars raised going to support community food pantries and food banks. Each store personally selected the local community food partner its campaign would support, ensuring the scan to end hunger would have a significant local impact. As a result, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint will receive $4,400 on behalf of two VG’s and a Quick Stop in North Fenton and Fenton – North Leroy and Silver Parkway. – R.S.
