Giving Tuesday 2022 – The Green Apple Pantry Wants To Feed More Neighbors

Nov 17, 2022 By

Do you know our vision at The Green Apple Pantry?

At The Green Apple Pantry we seek to improve the lives of our community, by providing nourishment to our neighbors in need, supplying them with healthy food and personal items; as well as tools of empowerment. Our goal is to assist our neighbors in nourishing them in – mind, body and soul.

We are an independent, 501c3 non-profit organization and we need your help. If you feel empowered to help others and don’t want anyone to go to sleep hungry, can you give on Giving Tuesday to The Green Apple Pantry? Thank you.

You might be asking – who do we help?

280 families | 750 individuals | 286 seniors | 210 children

Neighbors receive every 4 weeks: a box of shelf stable food, meats, dairy, produce and fresh bread.

Individuals receive: 90 pounds of food

Families receive: 150 pounds of food

How do we do this? – with the help of people like you. Every week people give their time to make sure others can eat and be happy. We have 130 monthly volunteers that give 510 hours of service to our community.

Again, all proceeds from Giving Tuesday 2022 will go to the local south Grand Rapids and Kentwood friends and neighbors. We are proud to serve our neighbors and never want that to go away.

This Thanksgiving, you can feed more people than ever before.

During the week of Thanksgiving, when your Meijer purchase includes Meijer brand food, Simply Give will provide a meal to feed a neighbor in need. The Green Apple Pantry is one of the holiday recipients of the 2022 Meijer Holiday Simply Give Campaign. We are honored to be able to partner with Meijer once again to help our neighbors.

2022 Meijer Simply Give and The Green Apple PantryHow to Give To The Green Apple Pantry

During each Simply Give campaign, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the local food pantry selected by the store.

Meijer customers shopping online using Meijer pickup or home delivery can also purchase Simply Give donation cards as an add-on to their orders (choose Gaines Marketplace or Cascade/28th Street location).

The Simply Give holiday campaign will run now through Dec. 31, 2022. Meijer will double match any cards purchased Saturday, Dec. 17, effectively tripling contributions made on those days (Gaines Marketplace and Cascade/28th Street locations).
