A Competition Among Pantries: Help Eleanor's Pantry WIN!


1) Family Fare is again helping the pantry through their grocery scanning process. Turn in your receipts to help us win another generous donation from family fare!


2) There is a second chance to help Eleanor's Pantry win another $1,000 through a competition with other pantries using Facebook. In this competition, when you see a post on the Eleanor's Pantry website about grocery scanning, SHARE every post as many times as possible. Family Fare will count the number of times our post is shared compared with other pantries. 


Between October 28th and November 4th, watch the Eleanor's Pantry Facebook page and SHARE it. Tell your friends and family members to SHARE it and keep going !

Because we are rural, we'll need all the help we can get to win this.

Thanks for helping!



Family Fare in Paw Paw partners with Eleanor's Pantry during scan campaign to provide hunger relief.

Between October 28 and November 8, store guests who visit the Family Fare  will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5 , $10 or round up their purchase at any checkout lane – and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit our food pantry.

Throughout the year, SpartanNash – and its family of retail stores, including the Family Fare – underwrites companywide scan campaigns in partnership with its charitable giving arm, the SpartanNash Foundation. The upcoming scan supports the Foundation’s mission of providing hunger relief in our communities, and each of SpartanNash’s corporate-owned stores is partnering with a nearby food pantry, serving communities in eight states!

We are excited to work with the Family Fare – and we can’t wait to see the generosity store shoppers will demonstrate during the 12-day scan campaign.

One hundred percent of all funds raised by the Family Fare will go directly to the Eleanor's Pantry, which will in turn have a huge impact on the food-insecure families we serve at our food pantry.

Every dollar matters as we work to end hunger in our communities.

We hope you will consider visiting the store between October 28 and November 8 and donating to their scan to provide hunger relief. Every dollar counts as we work to end hunger in our area.


What would we do without the amazing support of our local community?  Family Fare continues to support Eleanor's Pantry through their generous contributions!


Another $1,000 has been donated thanks to their partnerships with customers We appreciate their continued programs that benefit our important organization!


Thank you Family Fare!!
