Kroger promotes flu shots and giving back through One Shot, One Meal initiative
CINCINNATI — Kroger on Thursday announced its second annual health and wellness campaign, One Shot, One Meal, in partnership with The Little Clinic and Feeding America. From Aug. 17 through April 1, 2018, Kroger will donate one meal through the Feeding America network of food banks for every flu shot administered at all Kroger family of pharmacies and The Little Clinic locations.
"Kroger is committed to helping people live healthier lives and we're excited to continue this initiative for the second year," stated Colleen Lindholz, Kroger's president of pharmacy and The Little Clinic. "When you receive the flu shot this season at any of the Kroger family of pharmacies or The Little Clinic locations, you will help protect your health and provide a meal for a neighbor struggling with hunger. Kroger donated 330 million meals in 2016, and last year's campaign helped us achieve this milestone. We know that meals matter because nutrition is a key aspect of building healthier communities."
"Feeding America aims to provide wellness, nourishment and strength to people facing hunger," said Diana Aviv, CEO of Feeding America. "We are excited to partner with Kroger for the second year on this health and wellness campaign. Visionary partners like Kroger enable us to help the 46 million Americans who receive food and groceries from our network of food banks."
