Kroger Provides Update On Its Zero Hunger-Zero Waste Program

April 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

The Kroger Co. says that since it launched the Zero Hunger-Zero Waste food rescue initiative last September it has provided 325 million meals for “food-insecure” families across America. The company directed a total of $181 million in food and funds to end hunger in local communities and rescued 91.2 million pounds of unsold safe, nutritious food from its retail stores, or shipped from its distribution centers and manufacturing plants. The food was donated to Feeding America food banks in 2017. The program was originally launched 10 years ago as the Perishable Donation Partnership. Kroger said it is also working with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on a company-wide food waste analysis to identify where the company stands today in its journey to zero food waste. The company said it will donate $5 to WWF for each customer who shares a food waste reduction idea or photo on Kroger’s Facebook page.[Image Credit: © Kroger Co.]
