Holiday Food For Sharing
Publix – “Not just a supermarket”
We’re Making a Difference in the Communities We Serve
It’s that time of year again when we encourage our customers and associates to help those in need by donating to local food banks and pantries through our Food For Sharing in-store campaign, Nov. 7 through Nov. 27. The food will be donated to nonprofit organizations focused on those who are food-insecure in the communities we serve.
More than 49 million Americans struggle with hunger according to Feeding America, the nations leading authority on domestic hunger relief. Many are working families, children and the elderly.
There is something easy and convenient that each of us can do to help alleviate hunger in our communities. Stop by your neighborhood Publix and look for the Food For Sharing display. Select a donation ticket from the display and hand it to the cashier when you check out. A donation will be added to your grocery total.
Your donation will sponsor the following items:
The Food For Sharing program is a WIN/WIN for all of our partners. We help our customers, partner food agencies and our stores save time, money and reduce the carbon footprint. By donating food in bulk from our local distribution centers, we are more fuel efficient, customers have a convenient way to give back and pre-packaged bags do not need to be broken down and then re-sorted once it arrives at the food pantry. Food For Sharing makes it faster and easier to get food into the hands of those who need it most. Publix’s very generous customers and associates donated more than $4.8 million to help feed those in need last holiday season.
As part of the Publix mission, we focus our philanthropic efforts on the following areas: youth, education - specifically literacy, and the plight of the homeless and hungry.
