The Montrose Kroger Makes A Donation Of $5000 To Montrose Center To Help Feed LGBTQ+ Hungar!

(HOUSTON) — The Houston Division of Kroger has gifted the Montrose Center with $5,000 to assist the center and help alleviate food insecurity in the Houston, Montrose LGBT community.

According to the Montrose Center, the LGBT community experiences food insecurity at a higher rate than the general population with more than 1 in 4 LGBT adults (27%) – approximately 2.2 million people – experiencing a time in the last year when they did not have enough money for the food for themselves or their families, compared to 17% of non-LGBT adults.

“The Montrose Center cannot do this work alone, however, and the Houston Division of Kroger has stepped up in a big way,”

a statement released by the Montrose Center said.

“For more than 125 years, Kroger has emphasized a customer-first approach to providing quality products, value pricing, outstanding service and an exceptional shopping experience,” the statement continued.

Kroger is recognized as one of America’s most generous companies for its support of more than 100 Feeding America food bank partners, more than 145,000 community organizations, and now the Montrose Center in their most recent campaign, “Proud to Support Equality”. The Montrose Center said in their release.

“Pride Month serves as a time of remembrance for the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York and as a way to honor those who have fought and continue to fight for the rights of LGBT Americans,” Kroger said in a release.
