You’re Invited: Tell Kroger to Help Bees

Kroger building in Cincinnati

Please join us for "Tell Kroger Shareholders: Promote Local Organic Food and Protect Pollinators," a free creative media event in Cincinnati at the School for Creative and Performing Arts on Thursday, June 22, at 10 a.m.

This event, scheduled right before a Kroger company shareholder meeting at the same location, calls on the grocery retailer to protect bees and other pollinators by increasing its organic offerings and eliminating specific pesticides from its supply chain.

The event will feature remarks by Michele Colopy from Pollinator Stewardship Council, Tiffany Finck-Haynes from Friends of the Earth, and others. It will also include an installation representing two Kroger produce aisles. One aisle, stocked with local, organic and sustainably grown produce, will represent Kroger if it agrees to ban bee-killing chemicals from its shelves. The other aisle, devoid of food, represents Kroger if it does not eliminate these toxins from its supply chain -- and a food future we may face if pollinator populations continue to plummet.

What: Tell Kroger Shareholders: Promote Local Organic Food and Protect Pollinators
When: Thursday, June 22, 10 a.m.
Where: School for Creative and Performing Arts, 108 W. Central Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. The event takes place at the entrance to the school on the north side of W. Central Parkway.

If you're able to join us, RSVP using the form on this page.

This event is cosponsored by Friends of the Earth, Pollinator Stewardship Council, Ohio Ecological Food and Farming Association, Center for Immokalee Workers and the Center for Biological Diversity.
