Retailer's 'Bringing Hope to the Table' Campaign To Provide Food and Cash
Donations To Local Food Banks
SAN FRANCISCO, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its ongoing leadership in the fight against hunger, Foods Co, a division of The Kroger Co., invites customers to join in "Bringing Hope to the Table," a two-week campaign running this month in every store to support America's Second Harvest, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
With the help of numerous vendor partners, "Bringing Hope to the Table" is expected to generate cash and food donations to assist local food banks in communities where Foods Co customers and associates live and work.
Every time customers purchase participating items in Foods Co stores from June 8 through June 21, they will be showing their support for food banks in their own community.
The hunger relief campaign includes products made by Kellogg's(R), Keebler(R), P&G(R), Kraft(R), Nabisco(R), Pepsi(R), Nestle USA(R), and brands represented by Acosta Sales and Marketing. A number of the chains' own corporate brands, including Private Selection items, are also included in the fund-raising effort.
"As one of the largest retail grocers in the country, Foods Co is committed to the fight to end hunger in America," said Dave Hirz, President of Foods Co. "Food banks and hunger agencies across the country are facing unprecedented demand. 'Bringing Hope to the Table' allows our customers, associates and vendors to drive funds to food banks in the communities we all share."
Kroger and its family of stores have helped lead the fight against
hunger in the United States for more than 25 years. In the past five years,
the Company has donated nearly 140 million pounds of food and groceries,
valued at more than $210 million, to food banks across the country. In
addition to food, Kroger's family of stores contribute products such as
toiletries and cleaning supplies --
