According Kroger Dallas Division Corporate Affairs Manager April Martin,
“This holiday I hope the community will join Kroger Dallas Division and the Kroger Co. Zero Hunger Zero Waste Foundation by supporting our inaugural Community Care Hunger Program, with a goal to provide 5 million meals in partnership with five area food banks, including North Texas Food Bank, Tarrant Area Food Bank, East Texas Food Bank, Food Bank of Central Louisiana and Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.
“Customers will be able to support food-insecure families through the Community Care Hunger program, found at displays throughout the store where they will find a ‘virtual box’ or ‘Community Care $10 Food Box’ tab they can pull and bring to the register upon checkout. Customer donations will be captured on the Community Care wall in recognition of their generosity. Customers can also Round Up their general grocery purchase to the nearest $1, $5 or $10. In addition to customer contributions, long-standing partner Coca-Cola has pledged $100,000 to the hunger program.
“We are honored to have such strong partnerships with our area food banks, who share in our commitment to address food insecurity in our communities. The community needs us now, more than ever, and through the energy and drive of our amazing associates and generosity of our customers, we believe this program will help bring the community together to Feed the Human Spirit™ this holiday season.”
