The Schnucks – Bags 4 My Cause program was launched in May 2017 with the goal of facilitating community support for hunger relief organizations and the non-profit causes that are important to the stores’ customers, teammates, and neighborhoods.

Every time the Hunger Bag is purchased, $1 goes to a local hunger relief organization – providing 4 meals to those in need. With each purchase of the Giving Bag, $1 goes to a local non-profit cause in the areas of human services, education, health & wellness and civic organizations. Each month, a new non-profit cause and a new hunger relief organization are selected by store leadership to be the beneficiary of the program. The process of store leadership choosing the beneficiaries brings to light the grassroots nature of the program by connecting the store managers to the communities they support and serve. The program bags are proudly displayed on a designated reusable bag rack, which includes signage highlighting the benefiting causes for each month.

Nourishing lives locally and protecting our planet globally … these are the simple but profound goals of the Schnucks –  Bags 4 My Cause program.
