There's a fundamental absurdity in the U.S. food system. While 1 in 9 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.

We Support in Times of Need

The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation is committing $3 million to support our neighbors in this critical time of need. Our donation will fund local food banks and ensure children with school closures have access to nutritious meals. Join us in our Zero Hunger Zero Waste mission by donating today.

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.
