KROGER DONATES MORE THAN 10,000 MEALS TO ST. VINCENT DE PAULTO KICK OFF ‘FOOD FROM THE HEART' HOLIDAY DRIVE
Over 1 million pounds of food have been provided to local neighbors in need
CINCINNATI, OH – November 8, 2013 – The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in cooperation with Kroger and FOX19 have again this year partnered for the annual ‘Food From The Heart' campaign.
Since the annual holiday drive began 23 years ago, over one million pounds of food or more than 400,000 meals have been collected and distributed to local families in need.
The holiday food drive will run through December 31, 2013 with donations of non-perishable items being collected at all Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Kroger locations. The items collected will be distributed to families in need by St. Vincent de Paul volunteers in neighborhoods across the Tri-State throughout the holiday season.
Cash donations to support St. Vincent de Paul can also be made at checkout coin boxes at all participating Kroger stores for the duration of the campaign. In the communities surrounding participating stores, there are close to 300,000 people living below the poverty level, including more than 100,000 children. A $1 donation will provide 7 meals for these families. This year's goal is 70,000 pounds or 219 barrels of food, which would provide more than 56,000 meals.
"Our volunteers continue to hear from an increasing number of struggling families who have to make some difficult sacrifices in order to provide the most basic necessities, and nutritious food is simply something they can't do without." said Liz Carter, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati. "Our volunteers take the donations from ‘Food From the Heart' to neighbors in need in the community where they were collected. By supporting ‘Food From the Heart', you give more than a simple meal. You give hope to struggling families in your neighborhood and you let them know that somebody cares."
"Kroger is not just a grocery store operating in Cincinnati," said Sukanya Madlinger, President of the Cincinnati/Dayton Division of Kroger. "We're a member of this community with a genuine concern for our neighbors who so desperately need help. It's an honor to partner with Saint Vincent de Paul as this group is very involved and in touch with the families who benefit from the ‘Food from the Heart campaign.' Every year, our customers continue to give so generously even when they don't have that much to spare. We're hopeful that we meet this year's goal to ensure SVDP has enough to help families through and beyond December. It's important to remember… hunger doesn't end with the holidays."
Collection barrels with ‘Food From The Heart' signage will be located at all Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Kroger locations. There are three simple ways you can donate to a neighbor in need:
Purchase non-perishable food items and drop them in the food collection barrels located at the store entrances or at the checkout.
Drop a cash donation in the donation boxes at the check out counters at all Kroger stores – look for the clear plastic boxes with St. Vincent de Paul's blue logo.
Log onto St. Vincent de Paul's website, www.SVDPcincinnati.org, click on the Give the Gift of Hope link and make a donation to help feed a local family in need while including "Food from the Heart" in the special instructions box.
St. Vincent de Paul serves local families in neighborhoods across the Tri-State. As a result, the food donated is quickly distributed in the neighborhoods where it is collected.
FOX19 will report on the progress of ‘Food From The Heart' on FOX 19 News. A list of all participating Kroger stores is available on the FOX19 web site at www.FOX19.com and on the St. Vincent de Paul web site at www.SVDPcincinnati.org. For additional information please contact St. Vincent de Paul at 513-562-8841 (ext. 220).
