During this time, we are witnessing all kinds of heroes at work -- nurses, doctors, frontline workers, teachers, truckers, farmers and grocery store workers, just to name a few.

Now, local grocery store employees are also stepping up to help some Utah families who may be struggling to make ends meet.

Smith's Food & Drug is letting you round up your change at the register, or make a $1, $5 or $10 dollar donation.

The money goes to help families put food on their tables. Smith's and their parent company Kroger, have set aside $10 million dollars for non-profits.

They are also continuing their Zero Hunger Zero Waste program, and donating any food that can't be sold on a daily basis to Utah Food Bank.
