The enormous strain the COVID-19 pandemic put on all of us over the last two years transcends the grim facts of death tolls and case numbers. Each of us has been impacted by the pandemic in painful ways. We have missed valuable time and special celebrations with loved ones. Many lost jobs, changed jobs or left the workforce altogether. No one has been immune from the impact of the pandemic. It is in these times of upheaval that a company’s culture and values are tested, and I am proud that SpartanNash has emerged more resilient than ever, with approximately 16,500 Associates working on the frontlines and behind the scenes every day to help keep American families stocked with food, medicine and household supplies. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this Company, whose strategic identity is inextricably tied to the commitment we make to improve the quality of lives of our stakeholders – our invaluable Associates, our customers and store guests, and the communities in which we operate and live. SpartanNash’s mission – to deliver the ingredients for a better life through customer-focused innovation – serves as a daily reminder that we can only achieve business success when we protect and enhance the interests of our stakeholders. We are proud to share with you our inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, which highlights Our Winning RecipeTM and how we create stakeholder and shareholder value by aligning our ESG initiatives with our Company’s strategic priorities. Under the guidance and oversight of our Board of Directors, a sustainability working group composed of dozens of senior leaders across the Company contributed to this report because we strongly believe that ESG must touch every corner of our business. This report is just the beginning of the transformational journey happening at SpartanNash – a journey where we put People First, focus on Operational Excellence, and innovate through customer-centric Insights That Drive Solutions. Our Board of Directors, Executive Leadership Team and Associates have made a long-term commitment to promoting and integrating ESG considerations into how we achieve our mission. We will hold each other accountable to ensure a reliable, sustainable and resilient future for our stakeholders.
