We Have to Do Something

There is a fundamental absurdity in our food system: 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is thrown away, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. As America’s grocer, we believe we can do something about it with our size, scale and dedicated associates.

Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan is our commitment to end hunger in our communities and eliminate waste across our company by 2025.

#ZeroHungerZeroWaste

Kroger’s #ZeroHungerZeroWaste plan includes bold commitments that reflect our Purpose: to Feed the Human Spirit. We are counting on our associates, customers, partners and other stakeholders to help shape innovative solutions and scalable best practices as our work evolves. Because when it comes to hunger and waste, zero is the only acceptable answer.
