The Lockport/Homer FISH Food Pantry in Lockport is getting a helping hand from the Meijer grocery store at 14169 S. Bell Road in Homer Glen and its customers.

Meijer stores around the country are running their Simply Give program to combat hunger in their local communities, an initiative which has benefited the pantry since the Homer store opened in July 2014. The program runs three times a year nationwide and has generated $32 million to fight hunger since its initiation in 2008.
