Coronavirus

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – This week Kroger donated $50,000 in cash to Feeding Southwest Virginia, which will provide approximately 200,000 meals.

Since the start of the pandemic, Kroger has sent more than $105,000 in product and cash to Feeding Southwest Virginia, all to help ensure children have access to meals despite no longer being in school to receive free and reduced-lunch programs.

We are inspired by the work of Feeding Southwest Virginia during these complex and uncertain times, and we are doing our best to bring much-needed food and resources to those struggling with hunger right now. It’s comforting to know that our food bank partners are filling so many needs around our communities, and we will continue to look for solutions to support them.”

Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic.

Kroger is working with Feeding America and its partner agencies by collecting non-perishable food items.

Customers can support these efforts by donating the non-perishable food items into bins, which have been placed at the front of Kroger stores.
