2017 Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Champion Awards

At Kroger, we have some true community champions among our ranks. In our communities from coast to coast, they freely give their time and talents to local organizations, going the extra mile to make a difference. As trusted partners to hundreds of community organizations, they lift up the hometowns we share.

This year, to reflect the spirit of Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan, we aligned our long-standing community service awards to focus on hunger relief and waste reduction. This award is our way of thanking the dedicated associates – both individuals and teams at our stores, plants and other locations – who make our communities brighter through volunteerism when they are away from work.

These valued associates truly are Zero Heroes. Thank you.
