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.
