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. See what we’re doing to change our company and get involved by reducing waste at home with our simple tips.

*Now through January 31, The Kroger Co. Foundation will double the impact of your gift by matching 100% of donations, up to a total of $500,000, to help end hunger in communities Kroger serves.

Zero Waste Recipes

Households waste more than $1,300 in unused food each year. That’s crazy! But you don’t have to throw food (and money) away any longer. Our Zero Waste recipe series provides great ways to transform produce that’s “on the edge” (and other food items you might normally throw out) into delicious dishes. Check out this month’s recipes below, and see more ideas here.
