In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo, Pick ‘n Save and the Bucks teamed up to donate more than $50,000 worth of food to local Milwaukee pantries, including the food pantry at Capuchin Community Services House of Peace, in support of Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative.

“Celebrating the holiday season with family and friends can be a challenge for those struggling to put food on the table,” said Jim Hyland, senior vice president of communications for Kroger. “We are strong advocates of investing in the future of the communities we serve. Through our Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative, we are proud to support hunger relief organizations that are the cornerstone of the community, gathering and distributing food to families in need.”

When asked by a reporter: "Is this your greatest assist of the season?", Giannis replied: "I may be a little tired tomorrow, but it'll be worth it."
