There's a fundamental absurdity in the U.S. food system. Today, 40% of the food produced is thrown away, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. Redirecting even one-third of this food would help feed everyone in need. As America's grocer, we want to be part of the solution, and we have the size, scale and dedicated associates to do it. Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan is our commitment to end hunger in our communities and eliminate waste across our company by 2025.

The Road to Zero

We have a lot of work to do on our journey to create a world with zero hunger and zero waste by 2025. Working together with national partners Feeding America and World Wildlife Fund – and many other local organizations – we’re making progress. Here are some of our latest efforts on the road to ZERO. 

The road to ending hunger in our communities:

  • The tireless volunteerism to help end hunger in our communities over the past eight years is exactly what makes Jeanie one of Kroger’s Zero Heroes
  • Celebrating 10 years of Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Food Rescue in our stores
  • Honoring Zero Hero Kenya Walker at Baker’s in Omaha
