About Kroger Food Pantry: Established in 2012, the Kroger Community Food Pantry operates as a choice food pantry and is open to the community four days a week. Last year, the Pantry provided groceries to nearly 8,000 households in the greater Columbus Area. The success of the Pantry depends on the commitment and generosity of many volunteers.
