The Kroger Co. is proud to salute America’s heroes. We thank all the brave men and women who wear our country’s uniform – thank you for the sacrifices you make every day to keep our country safe. Our stores are honored to partner with the USO and support service members everywhere, and we’re proud to provide job opportunities for veterans and active duty military and their families.
New Home for Local Veteran
At the 2019 Honoring Our Heroes 5k, sponsored by Kroger, our Veterans Associate Resource Group along with Warrior Homesteads gifted a local veteran experiencing homelessness a tiny home.
While planning the 2019 Honoring Our Heroes 5K, the Veterans ARG wanted to do more, and reached out to Warrior Homesteads to work together to build and donate the home, outfitted with a full bed, bathroom and state-of- the-art appliances. The home also features a solar panel, is made from recycled materials and is built to green technology standards, further supporting our Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan.
Inspired by this act of kindness Food Story Brands, is partnering with Warrior Homesteads to donate another house to a local veteran in need for Veterans Day on November 11, 2019. Kroger will be donating $500 to help stock their pantry and fridge with fresh ingredients to help them settle into their new home.
Food Brings Family Together
Since 2009, Kroger has hired nearly 45,000 veterans! Meet a few of our Associates as they tell us how much a home-cooked meal means to them and their families. For all the meals and special occasions missed while serving our country, The Kroger Co. thanks all who serve.
