“At Kroger, we want to show our support of our local communities by partnering with Smithfield to fight hunger and eliminate waste,” said CEO of Kroger Rodney McMullen. “We are happy to play our role in positively impacting the lives of those living in Ohio.”
Since the program’s inception of the Helping Hungry Homes tour in 2008, Smithfield has provided more the 100 million servings of protein to food banks, disaster relief efforts, and community outreach programs nationwide.
“At Smithfield, we understand millions of Americans face hunger each day,” said Senior Director of Hunger Relief for Smithfield Foods Dennis Pittman. “We recognize the role we can play alleviating hunger by joining with local allies, such as Kroger and Shared Harvest Foodbank, to provide wholesome protein to the people of Ohio.”
