Meijer has again donated two tractors to Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank.

Meijer says among maintaining it's super-center chain, it's also committed to helping fight hunger.

This is the second year the retailer has donated reconditioned tractors to local food banks and educational partners.

This year the company donated 18 reconditioned tractors valued at more than $200,000 to several community partners in four states. They include:

  • Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank (Comstock Park, Michigan)
  • Ferris State University (Big Rapids, Michigan)
  • Food Bank of Eastern Michigan (Flint, Michigan)
  • Forgotten Harvest (Oak Park, Michigan)
  • Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan (Detroit, Michigan)
  • Lansing Community College (Lansing, Michigan)
  • Food Finders Food Bank (Lafayette, Indiana)
  • Northern Illinois Food Bank (Geneva, Illinois)
  • West Ohio Food Bank (Lima, Ohio)
"We are proud to be able to offer this level of assistance to these organizations that are doing the good work of addressing hunger in their communities,” said Rick Keyes, executive vice president of supply chain operations and manufacturing. "Meijer truly focuses on supporting the communities where our customers and team members work and live, and we are excited to help fight the problem."

The 18 tractors had previously been part of the Meijer truck fleet and were recently replaced with ones that offered the latest technology in emissions control. All of the vehicles have been reconditioned and prepped for their next use, including new tires, maintenance inspections and new graphics specific to each donation recipient.
