Each Saturday and Sunday from January 10 through February 1, Kroger will encourage shoppers to donate nonperishable food items to help feed hungry neighbors in their community.
It's simple & it's fun! Volunteers will pass out flyers and encourage shoppers to participate at the entrances, or collect food and cash donations at the exits.
We welcome volunteers as young as 5 years old, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult. This is a great project for families, scouts, or school groups.
