NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Kroger stores across Middle Tennessee are asking customers to help them provide 200,000 meals to Second Harvest Food Bank.

Now through Saturday, Nov. 26, customers can donate $1 at the checkout to provide four meals to families in need or $5 to provide 20 meals.

“With 1 in 4 children at risk of hunger in Middle Tennessee, it is important that we do whatever we can to make a difference,” said Kroger spokeswoman Melissa Eads. “Our customers and associates are always very giving and we are confident that heading into this holiday season they will once again answer the call.”

All proceeds collected through the food drive, dubbed the CAN Hunger campaign, will go to Second Harvest’s Feeding Programs which provides meals to children, families and senior at risk of hunger this holiday season.

Kroger is one of the nation’s largest retail grocery store changes. The Nashville division operates 94 stores and 80 fuels in Middle and East Tennessee, southern Kentucky and north Alabama.
