Children in front of a One Step well

Hy-Vee One Step

We know we can’t solve all the world’s problems. But we can do something. And you can do something, too. All it takes is one step. If we take that step together, we can help people, our communities and the planet.

One Step Cereal

Feeding the hungry.

Millions of adults and children across the world don't have enough to eat. Hy-Vee One Step cereals help support Meals from the Heartland, which provides food to food insecure people around the world.

One Step Trees

Planting trees.

Trees provide essential oxygen and beautify our communities. Hy-Vee One Step paper products help plant more of them.

One Step Water

Building wells.

One in six people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Hy-Vee One Step bottled water helps build wells to provide clean water for whole communities.

One Step Cereal

Millions of people in countries around the world as well as in our own backyard, lack a dependable, adequate supply of food. Proceeds from One Step cereals, packaged in a 100% recycled cardboard box, help those facing food insecurity. To date, more than 13 million meals have been donated to Meals from the Heartland, a non-profit organization that packages highly nutritious meals, which are distributed to food banks throughout the Midwest and to organizations around the world. Each meal is packed with rice, soy protein, dried vegetables and vitamins, ensuring that hungry children and families around the world get the nutrients they need.

One Step Paper Products

Every community needs the ecological and environmental benefits of trees. Trees supply two of life's essentials – oxygen and food. Trees offer clean air and shade, lower energy costs and provide a means of storm water control. Thanks to the sales of One Step Paper Products, which are made of recycled materials, more than 520,000 trees have been planted across Hy-Vee’s territory. Hy-Vee works with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees in neighborhoods, parks and other public spaces.

Planting Trees

One Step Water

The lack of reliable access to fresh water is a global crisis. Worldwide, one in six people lack access to safe drinking water and two in six lack adequate sanitation. Water-related illnesses are the leading cause of human sickness, suffering and death. Hy-Vee partners with Rotary International and other nonprofits to dig wells that will provide millions of people around the world with better access to clean water and improved sanitation. The proceeds from sales of One Step Bottled Water have led to the completion of nearly 100 clean water projects around the world.

Building Wells

One Step Eggs

All One Step eggs are produced on small family farms in Southeast Iowa and Northeast Missouri. For each carton of Hy-Vee One Step Eggs you purchase, we donate a meal through Meals from the Heartland.
