"40 million people across the country struggle with hunger and our mission is to bring that number to zero through the help of trusted partners like Home Chef,” said Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America.

This Thanksgiving season, Home Chef is tackling hunger in a new way by giving customers a chance to give back by skipping a meal! Through the “Plate it Forward” campaign, Home Chef will donate at least 1,000,000 meals to people in need and help more families enjoy a full table this holiday season through a partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.

“We’re proud of Home Chef’s heritage of giving back and want to make it easier than ever to spread the joy beyond your Thanksgiving table. This holiday season, we’re give our customers a simple and convenient way to help families in need simply by skipping a Home Chef delivery,” said Home Chef’s VP of Brand, Brian Irwin. “We’re committed to donating $100,000 to Feeding America and the great work they do to serve communities in need.”

During the weeks of November 12th, 19th, and 26th, Home Chef customers will have an opportunity to make a big impact by skipping their weekly Home Chef box and donating $40, $60, or $80 dollars to Feeding America. 100% of the proceeds will go to support the Feeding America network of 200 food banks across the country.

“40 million people across the country struggle with hunger and our mission is to bring that number to zero through the help of trusted partners like Home Chef,” said Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America. “We’re excited to partner with Home Chef for the second year to support our local food banks and help create a hunger free America.”

The “Plate it Forward” program is part of Home Chef’s commitment to Kroger’s Zero Hunger Zero Waste campaign that aims to end hunger in our communities and eliminate waste in our company by 2025.
