The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation exists to support nonprofit organizations, social entrepreneurs and creative thinkers who are focused on improving food security, ending food waste and more. The foundation cares for the communities we call home one meal at a time and is guided by three pillars.
Enabling collective action
We look for mission-aligned organizations interested in advancing greater positive impacts together – because we know we can’t end hunger and waste alone.
We aim to help fill the gap in funding for entrepreneurs and creative thinkers with solutions to these complex challenges.
Creating a more equitable food system
Every year, we direct grants to support national and local organizations focused that increase food access in our communities.
