SPRING, TX - The Kroger Co. has organized a family-friendly barbeque event that will boost morale, unite the community, and show support for employees from two Kroger stores temporarily shut down by Hurricane Harvey flooding. Employees from the Champion Forest/Cypresswood and Cypresswood/Hwy 249 stores have had to relocate to nearby stores. The two closed locations are currently in the process of being restored to reopen and serve their local communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Displaced employees and their families, as well as members of the local community, are welcome to attend the barbeque.

Kroger’s community barbeque will feature many fun activities the entire family can enjoy, including face painting, balloon twister, a glitter fairy with glitter tattoos, a photo booth and photo buttons. There will also be life-size characters strolling around the venue to provide additional entertainment. Marlene Stewart, Kroger’s president of the Houston division, Rachel Ross, vice president of merchandising,Mike Krell, vice president of operations, and store managers will welcome both Kroger employees and the community over the course of the afternoon. Throughout the event, attendees can find solace in shared experiences while eating flavorful Houston barbeque cooked up fresh on the Johnsonville Big Taste Grill. The grill is 65 ft. long and can grill 750 of their Famous Bratwursts at once.

At the event, Brian Greene, the President and CEO of the Houston Food Bank will accept a $100,000 donation from The Kroger Co. Foundation to supply operational support and meals to families affected by the floods.
