CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Together we can solve hunger this holiday season.

Check-Out Hunger, from November 16 to January 2, during your trip to your neighborhood Kroger. It’s a simple way to give back. Simply pull a donation amount at the register and scan it. It all adds up to put food on the table for our neighbors, children and families at risk of hunger.

More than 280-thousand people living in the 20 counties served by the Freestore Foodbank and its community partners aren’t sure from where their next meal is coming. More than 87-thousand are kids. The Freestore Foodbank works year-round to help address the need and bring hope to those who need it most.

During the holidays, the Freestore Foodbank provides boxes of food to local families to ensure they have a meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the tremendous support from the community, Freestore Foodbank was able to provide food for a holiday meal to help nearly 36,000 neighbors during the 2015 holiday season.

You have the power to make a difference here in the communities where we live and work. Every dollar you donate to the Freestore Foodbank provides three meals. Give the gift of hope this holiday season and Check-Out Hunger at your neighborhood Kroger November 16 through January 2. You can also donate online here.
