"Social responsibility and community involvement are company priorities established by our founder, Fred G. Meyer."
Mr. Meyer said, 'To be a good neighbor, you must strive to be a good neighbor in all ways.' Financial support of nonprofit organizations is just one of the ways Fred Meyer upholds this tradition."
The Fred Meyer Foundation assists nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping children and reducing hunger in communities served by 128 stores in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Idaho. The Fred Meyer Foundation has awarded grants totaling over $7.4 million since it began awarding grants in 1998.
