We asked several Food Lab members to reflect on the Food Shots. To tell us how they’re working towards a brighter future, and what others can do to enact change.

Our Purpose at Kroger is to Feed the Human Spirit. We are nearly half a million associates who serve over 9 million customers every day through 2800 retail food stores under a variety of local banner names and a seamless digital experience. We are focused on serving America through food inspiration and creating #ZeroHungerZeroWaste communities by 2025.

Zero Hunger/Zero Waste was launched a year ago as a bold goal with a specific, focused plan that leverages our scale for good. I’m incredibly proud to work for a company that has taken a strong and active stance on these topics, including directly addressing food insecurity in our communities by accelerating food donations to provide 3 billion meals by 2025, reducing food waste throughout our operations, advocating for Zero Hunger/Zero Waste public policy solutions and forming key stakeholder relationships, as we know we can’t do this alone. We’ve also established a $10 Million Zero Hunger/Zero Waste Innovation Fund to fuel transformation in this space.

In my role as the Head of Brand Building, I’m working with a number of internal partners to shape our strategy in this space, including making it a core part of our consumer-facing brand proposition. We believe that by partnering with the 9 million people who come to our stores every day, we can truly change the food landscape in our communities, whether it be by inviting them to participate in Zero Hunger/Zero Waste themselves or simply by helping to make it easier for them to make healthier food choices by creating access to and education about fresh, wholesome food.

"I lead our sustainability education and engagement efforts at the California Academy of Sciences, a natural history museum dedicated to exploring, explaining, and sustaining life on Earth. We are driven to protect biodiversity and find solutions to environmental challenges like species extinctions, resource depletion, freshwater decline, and climate change caused mostly by how we use and produce food, water, and energy."

"Working towards solutions in our food, water, and energy systems can feel overwhelming to people, so we guide our 1.3 million annual guests towards the most impactful sustainability solutions they can enact in their lives. Aligned with the Food at Google’s Food Shots, we use our engaging hands-on activities to help guests explore ways everyone can reduce loss and waste in food systems. 

To spread that critical message beyond our museum walls, we partnered with Google, to create an interactive tool for consumers called Your Plan, Your Planet."

"With Your Plan, Your Planet, people can quickly learn ways they can reduce their impacts on the food, water, and energy systems. The food waste tool helps people learn simple, everyday ways to reduce their food waste through interactive, delightful online experiences. Did you know that storing nuts in the refrigerator helps them stay fresh longer? 

We invite you to share Your Plan, Your Planet with your employees, your communities, and others who might be interested in reducing their personal food waste. We believe that making a few small changes at home can add up to big changes globally."
