Kroger Zero Hunger | Zero Waste
135 years in the grocery business have taught us a few things about food and people. We know that meals matter – families who share meals together have children who do better in every aspect of their lives. We also know more than 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is uneaten, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. Food waste undermines food security. We can help.

"I thought the Field Trip was excellent! It touched so many important aspects of the store as well as the importance of eating healthy, excercising and keeping our teeth clean."
Brandie L, Palmcroft Elementary Sschool
"The kids got to go behind the scenes and see all of the different jobs in the grocery story. They were excited to see other parts of the store where they had never been or had never heard about. Overall, we enjoyed the experience. Thank you!"
Kayla M, Clarkdale Jerome School
"The children loved the fieldtrip! When they came back they were so excited they were telling the teachers, other children and their parents about what they did! Thank you."
