The third annual Ultimate Bourbon Auction to End Hunger, hosted by Kroger, was created to support Kroger's Zero Hunger, Zero Waste plan to end hunger in the communities where we operate. This is the ultimate bourbon auction of the year!
With bottles of bourbon so rare, it's impossible to get your hands on them. These truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to own your own exclusive Van Winkle Collection, Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, and much more are truly the ultimate bourbon collector's dream.
**You must be 21 years of age to bid on auction items**
**Please note auction winners must pick up your winning auction item at: Kroger Company 1600 Ormsby Station Court, Louisville KY 40223**
With the huge success of our 2020 event, we will again host this premier bourbon auction that showcases some of the world's most unbelieve bourbon and experiences available. Don't miss your chance to be a part of the action!
In our first year, we raised nearly $200,000 and our goal is $500,000 for 2022!
At Kroger, our Purpose is to Feed the Human Spirit by taking care of each other, our customers, and our communities.
Kroger is committed to Zero Hunger, Zero Waste, our social impact program, which addresses a fundamental absurdity in our food system where 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is thrown away, yet 1 in 8 Americans experiences hunger. Our goal is to end hunger in our communities by 2025.
As America's grocer, we believe we must do something. Perhaps more importantly, we believe we can address this because Kroger has both the scale and connections, along with incredible partners, needed to tackle this challenge. Now, more than ever, we all need to work together to take care of those that need us. Hunger is too big for any one person, company, or leader to tackle alone.
Thank you for taking a seat at the table to help end hunger!

Eliminating food waste starts with understanding our current food waste footprint. After introducing Zero Hunger | Zero Waste, we began an engagement with World Wildlife Fund to study our retail supermarket food loss and waste. Our Sustainability and Retail Operations teams worked with World Wildlife Fund's Food Waste Program leaders and analysts to:
