We’re so excited about this donation—Kroger has donated $50,000 to both St. Vincent de Paul and ACFB as a means for each of us to purchase new vehicles to help us continue our work.
Kroger has been a major partner in our efforts to feed those in need over the years and this year has been no exception. In 2011, we received over 215,000 pounds of perishable food as part of our Perishable Donation program which allows us to pick up from 61 Kroger stores throughout the year on a weekly basis. Having one more truck to help with this is a great benefit to us and also to St. Vincent de Paul, one of our partner agencies. Thanks to Kroger for this wonderful donation!
