Food For Sharing
Publix – “Not just a supermarket”
We’re Making a Difference in the Communities We Serve
The face of hunger is likely to be that of a young child, a family or a senior citizen according to Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger charity. That's why Publix is teaming up with local community food banks and pantries to help eliminate hunger in the communities where Publix associates and customers live and work. The Publix Food For Sharing in-store campaign makes it easy to make a donation at the register to provide food for those in most need. The campaign takes place Sun., March 30 through Sat., April 19 at all Publix stores and provides food for dozens of nonprofit organizations focused on alleviating hunger.
We can all help make a difference this Spring. To sponsor a meal recipe, stop by your neighborhood Publix and look for the Food For Sharing display located near the checkout lanes. Select a donation ticket from the display and hand it to your cashier. The recipe amount 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 our partners. We help our associates and customers have a convenient way to give back, we assist our partner agencies in saving time and money and by delivering product on pallets directly from our warehousing and distribution centers, we're reducing our carbon footprint. Thank you to our very generous customers and associates for helping feed our communities this Spring and beyond.
March of DimesOur annual March of Dimes (MOD) in-store campaign will run Sat., April 5 through Sat., April 26, 2014. You can help make a difference for babies across our communities by simply purchasing an MOD cut out during the checkout process at your local Publix. $1, per donation, will be added to your total grocery bill.
The campaign wraps up with numerous March for Babies walks, the organization's largest fundraiser. The walks take place in more than 1,000 communities nationwide, and wherever there is a Publix store, there are bound to be teams of Publix associates lacing up their walking shoes for the cause.
March of Dimes is committed to saving babies by giving parents information they need to give their babies healthy starts. They support life-saving research that helps to fight birth defects, reduce the number of babies born with low birth-weights and reduction of the infant mortality rate in the US. They also work toward helping all mothers receive prenatal care.
In 2013, Publix customers and associates raised more than $4.7 million to support March of Dimes' mission and educational programs, such as the importance of folic acid during pregnancy campaign. Let's team up for healthier babies during the annual Publix March of Dimes campaign.
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.
