Brian Purcell started this petition to Kroger

The WAY has been picking up food donations from Kroger for over a year and Feedmore made them stop, A lady who works at a local food pantry reported that The WAY was selling the food donations it gets from Kroger. She did this after questioning Brian Purcell about what he does with the food he gets. He gave her a flyer and explained that The WAY provides food to 3000 people a month and the donated food we get from Kroger helps with that. He explained to her that The WAY has different programs that help different people and one of them is called Prepared Food for you(like a meals on wheels program). For $6.00 a bag a full bag of food is delivered to a person in need. She took that information and called feedmore(The place she gets food from to give away), they contacted The WAY and said no donated food can be sold or bartered and that all donated food from Kroger is Feedmore property. 

The WAY contacted Feedmore and explained to them that they do not sell the donated food. The $6.00 covers the cost for a delivery driver, insurance, gas, paper bags, plastic bags and food containers that food goes in. The next day Brian went back in to pick up donations because The WAY is not under feed more and He was told Kroger only gives to Feedmore partners.

Feedmore was contacted again by The WAY and they told us that they did indeed contact Kroger to remind them that they are under contract with Feedmore and that all donated food is Feedmore property. Kroger canceled their verbal agreement with The WAY over this and now the food The WAY was picking up 4 days a week is being thrown away because Feedmore does not have people to pick it up. 

The WAY is starting this petition because the donated food they have been given for a year from Kroger is food that Feedmore does not use and now is being thrown away because feedmore does not want people who are not under their control to take any donated food. The food The WAY gets from Kroger goes to seniors living at 15 different low income communities. These seniors do not cook and the prepared food is easy for them to warm up in their microwave. The WAY just wants Kroger to accept other non profits that are also doing good for the community. No one non profit should have control over all food donations from every grocery store.
