Kroger is partnering with Nutri-Grain to donate $50,000 to No Kid Hungry, which works with organizations, schools and community groups across Ohio, including the Children’s Hunger Alliance and Ohio School-Based Health Alliance.

“Today, one in five kids face hunger. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we are proud to be a part of the solution so kids can have the joyful summer they deserve,” said Sarah Reinecke, VP of Kellanova’s portable wholesome snacks division.

“Working with organizations like Kroger to support partners like No Kid Hungry not only eases the burden for families facing hunger but also creates better days for the communities in Ohio we both serve.”

Thanks in part to the work of No Kid Hungry, children and families in rural communities will be able to access meals through delivery or pick-up services, instead of requiring children to travel to the sites where the meals are served. Additionally, summer EBT, a grocery benefit, will be available for eligible families with school-age children. Together, these new programs could help more than 30 million children in the U.S.

“We are grateful for Nutri-Grain and No Kid Hungry in their work to ensure that all kids, regardless of where they live, get three meals a day, every day,” said Mark Bruce, corporate affairs manager for Kroger’s Columbus division.

“Kroger is steadfast in our efforts to end hunger in the communities in which we serve, and we recognize we cannot do it alone.”

This initiative not only addresses the issue of childhood hunger but also highlights Nutri-Grain’s commitment to nourishing communities. The partnership between Nutri-Grain, Kroger and No Kid Hungry is one of the ways Kellanova and its brands are bringing the Kellanova Better Days Promise to life. Kellanova is committed to advancing sustainable and equitable access to food, creating #BetterDays for 4 billion people by the end of 2030.

Since beginning its partnership in 2013, Kellanova has helped No Kid Hungry reach more than 1.8 million kids facing hunger in this country.
