Kroger supports food pantry program

11.20.2018

COLUMBIA, Tenn.—Kroger has awarded a $2,500 grant to the Maury Regional Health Care Foundation Friends and Family Nutrition Fund to support a food pantry for patients who need assistance. This is the second year that Kroger has provided support to the program as part of the company's Zero Hunger Zero Waste initiative.

Since the food pantry was established in 2012, more than 1,800 Maury Regional Health patients have benefited from the program. Support has been provided to patients being discharged home, cancer patients, parents of infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, hospice patients and many others.

"The food pantry provides support to members of our community who lack the resources to obtain proper nutrition as well as those experiencing a health crisis. We appreciate the generous support Kroger has provided to this program, allowing us to serve even more families," said Foundation Executive Director Joe Kilgore.
