Lifting Up Our Communities

Kroger has a long history of bringing help and hope to the communities we serve. Since our earliest days, the Kroger Family of Companies has taken care of our neighbors and each other.

When founder Barney Kroger opened his doors to give day-old bread to hungry residents, Kroger’s spirit of giving began. Nearly 135 years later, Kroger is still committed to sharing the fruits of our labor in our communities. We provide food and nourishment to help people live their best lives.
