Honoring Hunger Awareness Month and the second anniversary of Zero Hunger | Zero Waste, Kroger announces the 1 in 8 Art Gallery, September 13 in downtown Cincinnati!
Inviting professional and amateur artists from the Cincinnati area to participate, this themed art exhibit will showcase various media connecting to the general awareness of food insecurity. More than 30 artists submitted existing artwork and concepts for new pieces within the theme of "One in Eight." This theme stems from the fact that more than 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is uneaten, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. Highlighting this fact, the gallery experience seeks to drive home the discrepancies between assumptions and reality.
Join us for the gallery experience inside the Kroger Garage at 119 Central Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45202 on September 13, 2019. Gallery will be open to the public between 5:30pm and 10:00pm. More information about the event can be found here.
Featured artwork will be auctioned at the event on September 13, 2019 with 25% of the selling price donated to Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen & Social Center and 75% given to the artist.
