Kruger, NBC 5 join forces to fight hunger – NBC 5 Dallas Fort Worth

Just in time for the holidays, NBC 5, Telemundo 39, and Kroger are teaming up to fight hunger in communities across the region.

The campaign, called End Hunger Here, began at the South Dallas Kroger Store Wednesday morning.

Until December 7, Kroger shoppers will be able to purchase virtual lunch boxes by rounding grocery bills to the nearest $1, $5, or even $10.

The money raised will go to help five food banks, including the North Texas Food Bank, the Tarrant District Food Bank, the East Texas Food Bank, the Central Louisiana Food Bank and the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank.

“Over the last 18 months, we’ve gone from 5 mobile food stores to 23 mobile food stores each month, and we can go into these communities and serve families who haven’t been able to get to us or get to the pantry,” Linda Hutson with the Central Louisiana Food Bank He said.

Last year, the effort raised $2.4 million and hopes to reach $3 million this year — which translates to 9 million meals.
