BNOC and Meijer partner to provide hunger relief in Bellville, Ohio, through retailer’s Simply Give food pantry donation program.

People in our community continue to struggle every day to pay their bills and put food on their tables. Some are even forced to choose between the two, a heartbreaking decision that no one should have to make. We're pleased to announce that Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program this holiday to help fill that void for our local families.

Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 230 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin keep their shelves stocked with food for those in need. But it also fosters a sense of community by encouraging customers to purchase $10 Simply Give donation cards, which are then converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the local food pantry selected by the store.

BNOC will benefit from donation cards purchased at the local Meijer (1355 N Lexington-Springmill Rd, Mansfield, OH) now through Dec. 30th, 2017.

We want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in Bellville by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip. Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers... because every dollar makes a difference.

According to Feeding America, $1 equals 11 meals.

And when we give, Meijer gives. For the sixth consecutive year, Meijer will contribute at least $1 million to the 2017 Simply Give program.

We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve the hungry in Bellville. So don't forget to purchase a donation card at our local Meijer during your next grocery run!
