It’s why nourishing people’s lives is at the heart of everything Schnucks does. In addition to serving our customers and their families, we believe we have an important responsibility to nourish communities.
Our stores strive to be important community hubs, with meaningful connections to customers, neighborhood events, and activities, and our community engagement at the corporate level is focused primarily on two priorities: fighting food insecurity and hunger and developing the workforce.
Fighting food insecurity & hunger
As a leading regional grocer, we believe that we are uniquely positioned to partner with organizations that fight food insecurity and hunger. Across our five-state footprint, we partner with food banks, food pantries, and hunger relief organizations to help feed those who are among the most vulnerable in our communities. Each year, Schnucks donates more than $15 million in food to help those in need.
Developing the workforce
As a company that employs more than 14,000 teammates from all educational, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds, we believe that Schnucks is uniquely positioned to partner with organizations that specialize in developing the workforce. Our partnerships with nonprofits are especially focused on job readiness and training, increasing access to education, increasing the diversity of the region's workforce, and providing second chance job opportunities.
In addition to our two focus areas, we also support disaster relief through the American Red Cross, military veterans and their families through Folds of Honor, and our teammates and company partner to donate more than $1 million annually to the United Way.
ENGAGE WITH US
Whether it’s through permitting nonprofit solicitation events, providing donations for a cause that aligns with our corporate giving priorities, or donating to nonprofits through our Donate Your Schnucks Rewards program, we are committed to working together with nonprofit organizations to help strengthen the communities that we call home.

Salvation Army Fundraisers
Help us provide hope to our neighbors in need! The Salvation Army has been inspiring hope, combating poverty and meeting human needs without discrimination since 1865. Through the generosity of donors and the selfless efforts of volunteers, The Salvation Army will continue to “Fight for Good” against hunger and hopelessness across every ZIP code.
Round Up At The Register
From November 9 through November 23, Schnucks customers can donate to The Salvation Army by choosing to “Round Up” their purchase at Schnucks to the nearest dollar. One-hundred percent of round up donations support The Salvation Army in the customer’s community.
