KEARNEY — Family Fresh Market, 3920 Second Ave., was part of the SpartanNash Foundation’s campaign that raised $271,150 for more than 100 local food pantries and food banks in Nebraska and seven other states.
Between Oct. 23 and Nov. 3, Family Fresh Market shoppers could donate or round up to the nearest dollar at any checkout lane. Each store selected the food partner its campaign would support.
“These funds will put food on so many families’ tables, providing hunger relief where it’s needed most,” said Meredith Gremel, vice president of corporate affairs and communications and the executive director of the SpartanNash Foundation.
In other efforts this year, the SpartanNash Foundation raised more than $1 million for local Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity and patriotic partners.
