What are the Schnucks Bags 4 My Cause bags?

The Schnucks Giving bag and the Schnucks Hunger bag are both durable, reusable shopping totes that make it easy for you to support great causes and/or help fight hunger in your local community. Every time you purchase one of the Giving bags, Schnucks donates $1 to a local cause. Every time you purchase a Hunger bag, we donate $1 to a local hunger relief organization.

How do you determine which organizations will benefit?

Each month, every store team will choose one local cause and one hunger relief organization to benefit from that month’s sale of respective bags at their store. Signs will be posted on the specially-designed bag display rack to let customers know which groups have been selected for that particular month at that particular store.

Are there other benefits to these bags?

When you use these bags, you show others that you not only care about the community but also about the environment because you are choosing a more eco-friendly way to bring your groceries home.

How much does the bag cost?

Each Bags 4 My Cause bag costs $2.99, with $1 of that purchase price going to support either a cause or a hunger relief organization, depending on which bag is purchased.

How will the benefiting organizations get their $1 donation when I buy a bag?

Each bag purchased will be tracked and the chosen organizations will receive a check within 4-6 weeks after their beneficiary month ends. They will receive $1 for each bag sold during their chosen month.

Where can I purchase these bags?
