Hy-Vee and customers have raised more than $1 million to help supply food banks across the grocer’s eight-state region during the COVID-19 outbreak. More than $1,082,000 has been raised to provide supplies to 17 Feeding America-affiliated food banks. Those food banks distribute supplies to a network of up to 5,500 local food agencies across approximately 515 counties in Hy-Vee’s regional footprint. From March 23 to May 31, Hy-Vee customers were encouraged to donate $1 or more at checkout or via Hy-Vee Aisles Online, which was matched dollar for dollar by Hy-Vee up to $500,000. Communications platform Retail Zipline also donated an additional $25,000 to the campaign.
