06 Mar The Company Contrast – Home Chef
Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Home Chef (1.57 – lean liberal).
Home Chef is a meal kit delivery company, owned by Kroger. Over the past few years, the meal kit delivery industry has grown dramatically and changed the way many people think about cooking dinner. While companies like Home Chef make cooking dinner simpler, that may come at a cost as they use their influence to undermine your values.
Home Chef scores a 1.57 according to 2ndVote’s scoring system. This is mainly due to the actions of its parent company, Kroger, who acquired Home Chef in 2018. In the past, Kroger has donated to organizations like YWCA, Girls, Inc., and United Way through its foundation. It also scores a 100 on HRC’s latest CEI, you can learn more about the HRC here.
Unfortunately, many of the meal kit services score poorly; however, there are a few alternatives that will keep you from sacrificing your values. One good alternative is Freshly, another meal kit delivery service that scores neutral on 2ndVote’s scoring system. Another alternative is to shop locally and prepare dinner on your own. While it may be more time consuming, it can keep you from supporting companies that fund the leftist agenda.
