A military family from Nampa will receive free groceries for one year, thanks to Eckrich, Albertsons and Operation Homefront.

Specialist Allen Rogers, who served honorably with the Army National Guard for 17 years as an infantryman, and his wife, Christina, were surprised with one year of free groceries Thursday, Sept. 21. 

The Rogers said it will definitely help out their family of six, including therapy dog, Trooper.
"I did not know they were going to be blessing us like this," said Christina. "I can't express enough gratitude to everyone and, just, thank you so much for blessing our family." 

This surprise was part of Eckrich's ongoing campaign to honor military families through its partnership with Operation Homefront. So far, the Eckrich company has donated more than $2.5 million to the organization.
