Supporting Our Community

Like Customer Service,
Community Service is a Priority at Dierbergs


Our commitment to lending a helping hand reflects the Dierberg family’s long-held belief in giving back to friends and neighbors in our communities. Through contributions and partnerships, Dierbergs makes serving the community as much a priority as serving our customers.

Hunger Relief

Ensuring that those at risk of hunger have access to healthy food is our highest giving priority. We achieve this in many ways including supporting organizations that provide food to those in need, running register campaigns that allow our customers to join in and help, donating millions of pounds of food annually, and providing volunteers to help pack donated food during the holiday season when need is the greatest.

Children’s education is one of our top giving priorities. We fulfill this through programs with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of the Greater St. Louis area as well as by providing Lindenwood scholarships to eligible Associates annually.

Helping those at risk for hunger and supporting healthy living go hand in hand. Two ways we support our healthy living initiative through our Dierbergs-sponsored kitchen at COCA and our partnership with St. Luke’s and Missouri Baptist to plan and teach healthy cooking classes at our Dierbergs Cooking School locations.

Bye to Bags
