BRIEF: Kroger donates to students needing food during pandemic

The Kroger Company, which is made of Ralphs and Food 4 Less, is donating $150,000 to LACCD students needing food during COVID-19.

The company followed through on a $100,000 donation it made in the fall that provided groceries to 2,000 students. It began to work with the Foundation to mail $50 grocery cards for students to use at their local Ralphs or Food 4 Less.

“The generosity shown by Food 4 Less and Ralphs in support of our students had been remarkable, even before this pandemic,” LACCD Board of Trustees President Andra Hoffman
said in a statement. “The fact that they immediately stepped up again, just a few months after helping our students during the holidays, is a testament to their outstanding support of vulnerable communities.”

Students can apply for the cards by going on the portal system at my college.laccd.edu.

The Student Help Desk is available to help students who need password, login or navigation help on the portal.

Students can call (844) 695-2223 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
