DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Kroger donated a truck full of food to the Dayton Foodbank Friday to help it fill the shelves at its new facility on Armor Place.

The grocery chain also gave Foodbank officials a check to buy more than 59,000 additional meals for people in need.

“We are really thrilled for Kroger to be here today and help the Foodbank. It’s an impressive facility and our house warming gift will warm many homes in the Dayton community,” said Jennifer Lien, Kroger.

“There are over 127,000 individuals, children, adults and seniors who are food insecure in our area. That’s Montgomery, Greene and Preble counties and we have great partners like Kroger who are willing to donate,” said Lora Davenport, Dayton Foodbank.

The Foodbank says the need is at record levels and every donation helps because it is struggling to keep up with that need. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
