Thank you to Meijer
The St. Stephen Family Life Center is grateful for our partnership with the Meijer Town Square Store and the Simply Give Program and our parishioners that generously support the Family Life Center Food Pantry. Because of the Meijer and St. Stephen parishioners’ generosity, we can continue to meet the needs of low-income families that come to our pantry for additional food supplies. Our Family Life Center is committed to promoting a healthy life for the families of our neighborhoods. The Simply Give food gift cards will help us to continue to meet those needs.
With 1 in 8 Americans considered food insecure nationwide, food remains a basic need that many people continue to struggle to put on their tables. Meijer is committed to addressing hunger relief in Oak Creek through its Simply Give program, which replenishes the shelves of our St. Stephen Family Life Center Food Pantry. The Simply Give program has been feeding hungry families in Oak Creek, thanks to the continued support and generosity of Meijer customers, St. Stephen parishioners, team members and food pantry partners. More than 50 million Americans are considered food insecure, which means they don’t know where they will find their next meal.
MEIJER SUPPORTS LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES
- The Simply Give program runs three times a year to help fulfill the needs of food pantry partners when they need it most: spring, fall and holiday.
- During the campaigns, parishioners are encouraged to purchase $10 Simply Give donation cards, which are converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the St. Stephen Family Life Center Food Pantry.
- The Simply Give program allows our food pantry the opportunity to choose the grocery items best suited for the families we serve, as well as baby food, formula, diapers and wipes.
- Hunger relief is a corporate philanthropic focus at Meijer, in addition to education, disaster relief, and health and wellness initiatives.
