Community Engagement

Giving Pillars

At SpartanNash, our philanthropy strategy aligns with Our Winning Recipe and focuses on 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. We help champion:

Hunger Programs that Support:

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

SpartanNash and Miller Poultry have partnered for 17 years and have donated over 310,000 pounds of chicken and sausage to food pantries throughout Michigan.

When a water main broke in downtown Grand Rapids, Mich., the city issued an alert to more than 20,000 residents to boil all water before drinking. Within hours, SpartanNash coordinated with the city to donate six truckloads of Our Family® bottled water to residents – equivalent to 9,000 cases of water.

Hero 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 efforts

Hope Programs that Support:

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

SpartanNash partnered with Convoy of Hope in 2022 to distribute food, water and other supplies for those impacted by Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Fiona.

Corporate Donation Requests

At SpartanNash, we are investing in our local communities, working alongside our community partners through both our corporate giving and SpartanNash Foundation grants.

These requests range from sponsorships and in-kind donations to partnerships and volunteer activities that align with our giving pillars of Hunger, Heroes and Hope. Together with our nonprofit partners, we’re building stronger communities where we live, work and serve.

To continue building and strengthening these local relationships, we invite 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations complete the SpartanNash donation request form. Once the donation request form has been completed, visit your nearest retail store and meet with the Store Director to discuss the request.

PLEASE NOTE: Requests must be received at least 30 days in advance of the event.
