Food For All
Together We’re Making a Difference in the Communities We Serve
Food For All, a program of making change (a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization), raises money for domestic and international charities through retail point-of-purchase (POP) programs. These POP programs appear in thousands of grocery retail locations nationwide at various times throughout the year. Customers donate simply by selecting a $1, $3, or $5 donation coupon at the checkout stand. Proceeds are designated by the retailer to community-based, non-profit agencies. Publix has partnered with Food For All during the holiday season for 23 years.
Since 1990 Publix customers and associates have donated more than $26.7 million to local non-profit organizations throughout our operating areas whose mission is to either eradicate hunger or foster self-sufficiency and/or job creation. Last year, Publix’s Food For All campaign raised more than $3.2 million.
No time has the need for support been greater than during our 2013 Food For All campaign. Unemployment rates are still high and the gloomy economic environment continues to leave more individuals facing homelessness and turning to local food banks and community agencies for assistance.
How you can help
You can help make a difference in your local community by:
FICAH founded in 1985, emerged into Food For All in 1997 on the principle of providing self-help and sustainable solutions to ending hunger. Their programs unite the food industry and our customers in the belief that hunger is 100% curable.
As the organization has evolved, so has their charitable outreach. In addition to hunger-related organizations, Food For All and their food-industry partners provide funding and support to a variety of charities, whose focuses include job-training, Breast Cancer support, low-income health services, and after-school lunch programs to name a few.
Last year, Food For All changed their official name to making change in order to incorporate all their areas of focus. Retailers are able to conduct register programs under the FICAH, Food For All, or making change names. Publix has decided to keep our holiday program under the Food For All umbrella as our customers and associates have become familiar with this program and its name.
