Bringing Hope to the Table

The numbers are staggering. 1 in 6 Americans don't know where their next meal will come from. 48.8 million people are food insecure. They can be co-workers and neighbors. That’s why feeding the hungry is the heart of our community engagement.

We’re working to end hunger – one meal at a time.

Food & Funds

  • Last year, we donated the equivalent of 276 million meals through local food banks--including much-needed items such as fresh meat, dairy items, fruits, vegetables and bakery products that allow food banks to provide quality food to local families.
  • Our Bringing Hope to the Table annual commitment to local food banks provided $3 million in cash in 2015.
  • Daily, our store associates rescue safe to eat food from our stores for our perishable donation program.
  • Grants from The Kroger Co. Foundation allow local food banks to expand their services.

Volunteer Time

  • Our associates provide thousands of hours of volunteer service to end hunger.
  • Kroger managers serve on the boards of local food banks, providing guidance on food safety, logistics, facility operations and fundraising.
