Buy Prepackaged Meals for the Needy at Area Kroger Stores

As we get closer to the holiday season, it's time to start thinking about the many families who may need help making ends meet. Some say more than 100,000 people in the 21-county area that Second Harvest Food Bank serves will go without a hot meal during Thanksgiving and the December holidays.

You can help a family for as little as $7. Stop by your nearest Kroger grocery store, where you can buy prepackaged boxes. Each box contains a nutritious meal to feed a family of four.

"This time of year is where people start holding back and the weather's changing," said Doug Hill, manager at a local Kroger. "You've got to have Christmas and the food supply really depletes, so the food banks are in very strong need for food right now."

Kroger stores will be offering these prepackaged boxes until the end of December.
