The Kroger family of companies is committed to community engagement, positive social impact and charitable giving at the national and local levels. Every community is unique, and we follow established principles to achieve a common goal: to be welcome in our neighborhoods and help people live healthier lives.
We direct our charitable giving and service—at the national and local levels—to nonprofit organizations that focus on hunger relief, military service men and women and their families, health and nutrition, disaster relief and more.
In 2018, a total of more than $328 million was directed in Kroger's name to our communities. Of this, $192 million helped end hunger where we live and work. Our giving reflects the generosity and involvement of our associates and customers, who amplify our commitment beyond our family of companies' philanthropic contributions.
We believe in an open two-way engagement process, including regular touchpoints with stakeholders and members of our community. We recognize that our stakeholders represent a wide variety of interests, and we welcome ongoing dialogue on key topics.
