Oprah Winfrey was a food bank fairy godmother yesterday when she popped up at the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati, Ohio, to help over 100 volunteers pack school meals. She made her surprise visit on behalf of her food line O, That’s Good! to show support for Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Wasteinitiative.
“It’s an honor to support this initiative in the local Cincinnati community and beyond,” Winfrey said in a press release. “I am committed to the fight against hunger because I’ve seen the impact it has on people. That’s why I wanted to be here today to help pack food for Cincinnati children facing hunger. The work Kroger is doing is special and meaningful.”
In addition to helping pack 2,000 meals for children in the greater Cincinnati community, Winfrey’s food line and Kroger donated one million meals to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
