Corporate Social Responsibility

In 2021, we refocused our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and philanthropy strategy to align to the three primary pillars – Hunger, Heroes and Hope.

This strategy provides us with a roadmap of how we as a Company can sustain and scale our commitments, predict and respond to emerging needs and engage our Associates and communities in socially responsible ways.

Hunger Programs that Support:

  • Reducing food waste
  • Fighting food insecurity
  • Health and nutrition access and education

Heroes Programs that Support:

  • U.S. military servicemembers, veterans and their families
  • Community leaders, including teachers, law enforcement, firefighters, healthcare workers and blood donors
  • SpartanNash frontline heroes and Associate volunteers
  • Disaster relief

Hope Programs that Support:

  • Career skills training and pathways
  • A more sustainable environment
  • Diversity & Inclusion

We have a strong commitment to serving our military heroes through recruiting, hiring, advocating for and providing professional development opportunities for veterans, Reservists and National Guardsmen. In fact, we’ve been named both a Veteran-Friendly Employer and a Military Friendly® Employer, recognizing that SpartanNash understands the benefit of hiring and retaining those who served our country and the skills and experience they bring to our workforce.
