Kroger Makes Donating Food Easy with January-February In-store Drives

Harsh winter weather brings many obstacles, from higher utility bills to transportation barriers. Many people in need might have to choose between staying warm or going hungry. Luckily, there is an easy way to help your neighbors: Kroger Food Drives.

For the 9th year in a row, we’re partnering with Kroger Co. of Michigan to host food drives from January-February. Stop by any of the 92 participating Kroger stores across southeast Michigan for an easy way to donate food to those who need it most.

Food donated thought the Kroger Food Drives goes directly to Gleaners’ partners across southeast Michigan. Lighthouse, one of our partner agencies, relies on drive donations to help feed hundreds of people in need each winter.  “The Kroger Food Drive provides our organization enough food to serve for an eight-week period,” said James McQueen. “We are grateful for our partnership with both Kroger and Gleaners.”

How You Can Participate

Volunteer: We need volunteers to help greet customers and make sure they know what food and personal hygiene items are needed most. Sign up to volunteer at your local Kroger and help us reach more people this winter!  **A full list of stores appears at the bottom of this blog post.**

Check the schedule below and sign up to volunteer:

Saturday, February 1 Sunday, February 2 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Saturday, January 18 Sunday, January 19 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Saturday, February 1 Sunday, February 2 10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.

Saturday, January 25 Sunday, January 26 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Saturday, January 11 Sunday, January 12 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Donate while you shop: Each county area of Kroger stores has a specific weekend for the drive, which will be held from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays . Our volunteers will be there to greet you and provide a list of the foods and personal items that are needed most. Gather items while you shop and donate them at checkout. It’s an easy way to give back during your regular shopping routine.

Customers may also donate at any register or select a pre-filled “From Hearts to Homes” box of groceries to add to their total at checkout for donation. Each item, monetary donation and “From Hearts to Homes” grocery bag donated brings hope and food to tables in the community.

These donation events are part of the Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative to end hunger and food waste in communities Kroger serves by 2025.
