By taking action to alleviate hunger, Publix is responding to the critical need to put food on the table in our communities. We believe in giving back and helping make a difference, especially during these challenging times.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the need for food assistance has reached unprecedented levels. Feeding America estimates that an additional 17.1 million people in the U.S. could be food insecure in 2020 for a total of 54.3 million people, or 1 in every 6 Americans.
Every September, we support Hunger Action Month and Feeding America’s efforts to help people who struggle with food insecurity. In addition, we have several year-round hunger relief initiatives.
“Millions of Americans aren’t sure where they will get their next meal, and as a food retailer we can make a difference,” CEO Todd Jones said. “It’s been our privilege to help people in need for many years, most recently with our new program supporting farmers, food banks and families hit particularly hard by the pandemic. We’re also grateful to Publix Charities for their continuing efforts to alleviate hunger in the communities we serve by bringing nourishment to people who need it most, especially during these difficult times.”
