KROGER HIRES 2,376 YOUTHS IN SUMMER JOB PROGRAM

 CINCINNATI, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) has hired 2,376 young people to work in its stores nationwide in a special summer jobs program that targets teenagers from low and moderate income families.
 The number of positions created and filled is nearly double the 1,200 slots the company pledged in response to the Clinton Administration's "Summer Challenge" jobs initiative. Last summer, Kroger's special summer job program provided employment for approximately 1,000 young people. Hirings under the special program are in addition to the company's normal summer hirings.
 Kroger Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Joseph A. Pichler said the summer job program reflects the company's "ongoing commitment to serve our communities by creating opportunity for some of our nation's most deserving young people."
 Pichler, who is also chairman of the National Alliance of Business, said the White House effort to stimulate employment for young people during the summer months is a critical social and economic priority. "A summer job at Kroger provides kids with financial rewards plus the benefits of a productive and positive employment experience."
