At designated times throughout the year, the SpartanNash Foundation invites the communities it serves to join it in supporting key initiatives in partnership with our national, regional or local 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners. This is done through a retail scan, where we invite store guests — primarily at our Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery and Dan’s Supermarket stores — to join the SpartanNash Foundation and our Associates by donating at the checkout register.
Retail scan partners are carefully selected to ensure the dollars raised are effectively utilized in the communities where they are raised. We are committed to making as big of an impact as possible in our local communities. SpartanNash underwrites all operational expenses, ensuring that every dollar goes directly to the partner organization.
In 2020, we raised and granted more than $827,000 through three companywide scan campaigns, benefiting local Habitat for Humanity, patriotic and food pantry partners.
