There is a 15-year life expectancy difference between Louisville residents in the East and those in the West End. #FeedTheWest is a community food justice initiative spearheaded by Shauntrice Martin sponsored by Change Today, Change Tomorrow. This initiative will continue on until the West End has a Black-Owned and sustainable fresh food source for our residents.

REPORT CALL TO ACTION: Call/email/tweet this report to Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen.

Ask him why he gave himself a raise instead of giving Black people healthy food. According to Louisville Business Journal, Kroger Co. boosted the compensation of CEO Rodney McMullen by 21% last year, driven by a boost in stock awards tied to performance incentives. Demand that he donate $5 million to #FeedTheWest.
