Kroger ‘Can Hunger’ campaign under way

Donations for area families in need

Kroger is collecting food for the holidays and is asking customers to help “can hunger” through their donations.

The grocery store chain will be donating the collected can goods to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other Feeding America Food Banks.

Henry County shoppers, along with other metro-Atlanta-area customers can purchase $1, $3 or $5 icons to help provide food for local families. The “can hunger” campaign began Nov. 13, and will continue until Dec. 24.

“The Can Hunger campaign provides Kroger associates and customers with the opportunity to give back to their community during the holiday season,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Small monetary donations can make a large impact in feeding those who are less fortunate within the community.”

Kroger’s Atlanta Division is headquartered in Atlanta, and is one of the Southeast’s largest retail grocery chains, with more than 214 stores covering Georgia, Eastern Tennessee, Northern Alabama and South Carolina.

The Company focuses its charitable efforts on hunger relief, K-12 education, women’s health initiatives, and local organizations in the communities it serves, according to Kroger Public Affairs Spokesperson Nancy Gore-Scott.
