BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A national grocery chain is giving back to a nonprofit organization in Bowling Green.

Meijer announced Thursday that its store in Bowling Green will be donating $20,200 to Hotel Inc.’s food pantry.

The money is coming from the grocer’s Simply Give program, which generated more than $2.5 million in donations for food banks this year nationwide. According to Meijer, that’s the equivalent of more than 25 million meals.

During the campaign, customers were encouraged to purchase $10 simply give donation cards at checkout.
