Kroger Grants and Giving Programs

In the past six years, Kroger has directed more than $1.9 billion in charitable giving to support national and local organizations that feed families and build stronger communities. Of this, more than $1.3 billion in giving focused on ending hunger and bringing their Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social and environmental impact plan to life.

Through corporate giving and the work of their two foundations – The Kroger Co. Foundation and The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation – they direct more than $300 million annually to partners and causes that align with our mission.
