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.
