Thanks to the generous donations from the Tri-State, $74,066 was raised during the “Food From the Heart” campaign.

Kroger, in cooperation with FOX19 NOW and St. Vincent de Paul, kicked off the campaign in November.

Since the annual holiday drive began over 30 years ago, more than 1 million pounds of food have been collected and distributed to local families in need.

Due to the events of 2020, FOX19 NOW & Kroger changed the campaign to be all virtual so that donating was easy and safe for everyone.

St. Vincent de Paul serves local families in neighborhoods across the Tri-State.
