Kroger said it will work with its suppliers and dairy cooperative farmers to process and donate about 200,000 gallons of milk to food banks.
CINCINNATI – Kroger announced a large donation to food banks in the United States.
The supermarket chain said it will work with its suppliers and farmers from dairy cooperatives in the Midwest and South to process approximately 200,000 gallons of milk and donate it to Feeding America’s food banks and other community organizations. The donation is an extension of the milk rescue program and runs until the end of August.
“At a time when dairy farmers have excess raw milk, we are redoubling our mission to reduce hunger and waste,” said Erin Sharp, Kroger’s group vice president of manufacturing.
Kroger says partnerships under the company’s Dairy Rescue Program already donate 129,000 gallons of milk annually.
