The giveaway program will award $1 million to five winners who get vaccinated at any Kroger Co. location. Fifty people will win free groceries for a whole year. Named the #CommunityImmunity Giveaway, the program was designed to incentivize more adults to get vaccinated. The giveaway started on June 3 and will continue until Saturday, July 10. The giveaway is open to anyone ages 18 and older who receives or has already received at least one dose at a Kroger Co. location.
