Hy-Vee, Inc. announces the start of a monthlong campaign to honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military members in our communities, as well as increase awareness of and support for organizations that serve veterans, active-duty military and their families.
Every November, Hy-Vee salutes our nation’s veterans and active-duty military through the Hy-Vee Homefront initiative, which includes several company efforts, including the “Hy-Vee Homefront Round Up” program at checkout and free Veterans Day breakfast, as well as an active recruitment effort to hire veterans and service members transitioning to civilian life to the company’s workforce.
Hy-Vee Homefront Round Up is Hy-Vee’s annual fundraiser in which the company teams up with customers to raise money to support veterans, active-duty military members and their families. The fundraiser will be held now through Nov. 13 at all Hy-Vee stores and Dollar Fresh Market stores across its eight-state region. Hy-Vee will match all customer donations up to $100,000, and Coca-Cola will additionally match up to $50,000 with all proceeds benefiting Hope for the Warriors, Operation First Response, American Red Cross and the Puppy Jake Foundation.

In addition to the Homefront Round Up, Hy-Vee will honor Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 11, by offering a free breakfast to all veterans and active-duty military members. A buffet-style breakfast will be offered from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Hy-Vee stores.
