SpartanNash Expands Partnership With Flashfood; Amy McClellan and Josh Domingues Discuss

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - In their fight to curb food waste, SpartanNash and Flashfood have teamed up once more, expanding their partnership to reach 44 additional Family Fare and VG’s Grocery store locations throughout Michigan, Iowa, and Nebraska.

Amy McClellan, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, SpartanNash“We’re delighted to create food solutions for the communities and families we serve while keeping many food products near the end of their shelf life out of landfills,” said SpartanNash Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Amy McClellan. “To lower shoppers’ grocery bills at a time when many are struggling with inflation costs, while also saving nutritious food from going to waste, is a win-win in our book.”

In their pursuit to expand this offering, Nebraska and Iowa will be getting the first-ever Flashfood locations to the SpartanNash store network. In doing so, the retailer bolsters its mission to deliver healthy ingredients as well as reduce food waste and provide affordable access to nutrition, which are key focus areas within the chain’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy.

Josh Domingues, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Flashfood“Food waste that ends up in landfills is a major contributor to climate change. This expansion allows us to tackle that problem, while also feeding families more affordably,” said Flashfood Founder and Chief Executive Officer Josh Domingues. “We commend SpartanNash for its commitment to sustainability and look forward to serving these new communities together.”

According to a press release, SpartanNash was the first company to introduce Flashfood in Michigan and Indiana through its pilot program at Family Fare and Martin’s Super Markets.
