GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer last week announced its donation of 35 reconditioned semi-tractors to local food banks, academic organizations and law enforcement throughout the Midwest.
The donation is part of the chain's ongoing commitment to support the communities it serves, the company said.
In total, 14 food banks and food rescue organizations will receive the donations, with each receiving two trucks. The remaining trucks were donated to the Michigan State Police and several academic institutions, including Oakland Community College, Kent Career Technical Center and Ferris State University.
Meijer's EVP supply chain operations and manufacturing Rick Keyes said the company is "proud to be able to provide this level of support for organizations that do such important work."
