Thanks to our incredible partners at Kroger Grocery Stores for donating 60,000 healthy snacks for our lunch bags to feed hungry children!  Nutritious snacks are an imperative component of our healthy lunches and can be expensive for Kids’ Meals to provide in the quantities needed (more than a million this year).  Companies like Kroger make it possible to ensure that our children receive essential nutrition and have the chance to develop healthy eating habits that will last them a lifetime.

In addition to Kroger’s healthy snack donation, we want to recognize their phenomenal Front-End Teams who collected, donated and held in-store events to decorate thousands of lunch bags with children shopping at Kroger.   We also want to thank Kroger’s Women’s Edge group (especially Erica!) who led the efforts to put together the entire donation.

 Included in their generous gift were more than 20 bags stuffed full of jars of peanut butter which will be in our weekly family grocery bags.

Kroger is an outstanding example of corporate involvement.  From providing healthy food, to participating in fun and impactful volunteer experiences, they are leaders in our fight to end childhood hunger in Houston.
