With the holidays coming up, I often remind myself to take a beat and think of those less fortunate. Whether that means donating any cash I can spare, some old clothes, or even some canned food laying around the house, every little bit helps.
To help the process of feeding the hungry go a lot smoother, Kroger stores assembled boxes of food that can easily be purchased and donated to those in need.
All 107 Kroger locations in the Mid-Atlantic Division have begun selling boxes of non-perishable and nutritious food that customers can buy and donate to Feeding America food banks as a part of the company’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Initiative.
At $7.99, the boxes are filled with items like oats, beans, canned veggies, canned meat, peanut butter, rice, canned fruit and juice. Each box is able to provide enough food to last 10 meals.
Since 2013, Kroger has donated one billion meals through a combination of food and funds donations. Kroger plans to eliminate food waste entirely within the company by 2025.
Customers can find the boxes on display at the front of 107 stores, with more than 10,000 boxes donated to Kroger locations and will be available for purchase through December 31.
