There's a fundamental absurdity in the U.S. food system. While 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger, 40% of food produced in the U.S. is thrown away. As America's grocer, we want to be part of the solution, and we have the size, scale and dedicated associates to make it happen. Kroger's Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan is our commitment to ending hunger in our communities and eliminating waste across our company by 2025. See what we’re doing to change our company and get involved by reducing waste at home with our simple tips.

Fresh For Everyone

In celebration of the holiday season, we brought a community together with a fun holiday meal, festive decorations and keepsakes to remember the occasion for families in need. To help these and many other families in need, consider donating to the Zero Hunger | Zero Waste foundation today. Your contribution will help create a world with zero hunger and zero waste.

Zero Waste Recipes

Households waste more than $1,300 in unused food each year. That’s crazy! But you don’t have to throw food (and money) away any longer. Our Zero Waste recipe series provides great ways to transform produce that’s “on the edge” (and other food items you might normally throw out) into delicious dishes. Check out this month’s recipes below, and see more ideas here.
