Feeding those in need

Last week, Oprah Winfrey surprised Cincinnatians with a visit to the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati, Ohio, to help more than 100 volunteers pack school meals. She came on behalf of her food line O, That’s Good! to show support for Kroger's Zero Hunger, Zero Waste initiative. 

In addition to helping pack 2,000 meals for children in the greater Cincinnati community, Winfrey’s food line and Kroger donated one million meals to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

“It’s an honor to support this initiative in the local Cincinnati community and beyond,” Winfrey said in a press release. “I am committed to the fight against hunger because I’ve seen the impact it has on people. That’s why I wanted to be here today to help pack food for Cincinnati children facing hunger. The work Kroger is doing is special and meaningful.”
