History of Giving
When founder Barney Kroger opened his doors to give day-old bread to hungry residents lined up at the store, Kroger's spirit of giving began. More than 130 years later, that tradition of helping feed our hungry neighbors continues.
For nearly 40 years, the Kroger Family of Companies has partnered with Feeding America to bring food, funds and hands-on assistance to local hunger relief efforts. In 2015 alone, those contributions of food and money provided the equivalent of 276 million meals. All went to food banks and hunger agencies serving the communities our customers and associates call home.
