Schnuck Markets Inc. said the company is investing approximately $200,000 in the communities in which it operates by purchasing gift cards to local restaurants that will be awarded to all Schnucks teammates. Each Schnucks teammate will receive a $15 gift card to a restaurant located within five miles of his or her work location.
“As many families do this time of year, we wanted to support others in our ‘food family’ – in this case the many local restaurants negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Schnucks
Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “We thought the best way to do this was by offering all of our teammates gift cards to these restaurants near our stores, extending our mission to nourish eople’s lives to those many businesses and their employees who help make up the communities that we jointly serve.”
This program continues Schnucks support of local restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic when many are operating with reduced capacity or are only offering carryout services. In April,
Schnucks announced that it would begin carrying grab and go meals from local restaurants . In July, Schnucks expanded these partnerships focusing on local Black-owned restaurants .
