Kroger Mid-Atlantic announces ‘Hero Bonus’ for all hourly frontline associates

ROANOKE, VA (WOAY) – Kroger Mid-Atlantic announced it will provide all hourly frontline grocery, supply chain, manufacturing and pharmacy associates with a Hero Bonus – a $2 premium above their standard base rate of pay, applied to hours worked March 29 through April 18. The premium will be disbursed weekly to ensure associates have access to additional cash.

The announcement follows and is in addition to Kroger’s previous commitment shared on March 21, which provided a one-time bonus to frontline associates, which pays out on April 3.

“We’re inspired by our associates who have been on the frontlines, working tirelessly to ensure our communities have access to fresh, affordable food and essentials during this time,” said Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “Our associates truly are heroes, and the Hero Bonus is a way to thank not only existing associates, but the 500 who have joined the Kroger Mid-Atlantic team in the past two weeks.”
