Social Responsibility


Our goal is to be engrained in the fabric of our communities – not just at the dinner table.

In 2015, we contributed $1.5 million toward sponsorships, fundraisers, gift cards and product donations to our community partners to advance education, health and wellness, hunger, patriotic and community initiatives. We responded to 4,365 requests, supporting events such as fireworks, parades, youth development teams and fundraiser walks, runs, relays and bike races. In addition, our SpartanNash Foundation granted $1.26 million in 2015 and $1.8 million in 2016 to community nonprofit organizations.

Each year, we donate 2.5 million pounds of food to fight hunger.

Our associates volunteer more than 10,000 hours a year to help our neighbors.

We have comprehensive associate and food safety programs. With thousands of products shipping every day, ensuring each and every food item is safe for consumption is a corporate responsibility we don’t take lightly.

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.

Customers have a choice where they shop – what makes us different is our associates and our connection to the local communities we serve.
