September is Hunger Action MonthTM, the Feeding America® nationwide initiative that asks Americans to take action and fight hunger in their community. In honor of Hunger Action Month, Fred Meyer is teaming up with Second Harvest and The Great American Milk Drive to make it easy for shoppers to donate nutrient-rich milk to help get kids ready to learn as they head back to school this fall.
Milk is one of the most requested, but least donated items at food banks, meaning children in need may be missing out on the 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein in each 8-ounce serving that it supplies.
Through September 23, Fred Meyer is inviting shoppers to Feed a Childhood by purchasing a $1, $3 or $5 milk voucher donation at checkout. All donations collected will help local families get the milk they may be missing out on.
Now in its fourth year, Kroger’s annual Hunger Action Month partnership with The Great American Milk Drive delivers highly-desired, but rarely donated nutrient-rich milk to Feeding America network food banks across the country. Over the last three years, Kroger shoppers have donated more than 4 million servings of milk to children and families in need across the country.
