How We Helped: Nutritious Food

Food rescue is a big part of the work we do, and we can’t do it without loyal partners like King Soopers! Care and Share drivers stop by local King Soopers stores multiple times a week to pick up food donations that make it onto the plates of our neighbors in need. In 2017, King Sooper’s parent company, Kroger, launched the Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative, which aims to reduce food waste and eliminate hunger. Care and Share has been a long-time partner of King Soopers and City Market. Since 2013, we have received nearly 4 million pounds of donated food. That includes more than 300,000 pounds of fresh product and 1.3 million pounds of meat. Strengthening our partnership even more, Adam Williamson, Director of Corporate Affairs for King Soopers and City Market, recently joined Care and Share’s Board of Directors. “As a company, Zero Hunger | Zero Waste means so much to us,” said Williamson. “We know that eliminating hunger in the communities we serve can’t be accomplished without great partners like Care and Share.”
