Kroger's Atlanta Division recently donated $150,000 to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) as part of its "Bringing Hope to the Table" campaign.
Customers and associates helped raise the money by purchasing select items, over a two-week period.
"This donation was made possible through the generosity of our vendor partners, customers and associates," said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications for Kroger's Atlanta Division. "Food insecurity is a serious problem in Georgia, and supporting the Atlanta Community Food Bank in its mission to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering the community is critical."
Kroger's donation kicks off Hunger Action Month, a national movement to raise awareness, and take action to fight hunger in America. Throughout September, the ACFB and Feeding America -- the nationwide network of more than 200 food banks -- will be working to engage citizens to take action through the "30 Ways in 30 Days" campaign.
