Our founder, Mr. George, spent his life sharing his time, money and talents in hopes of making a difference in the lives of others. When asked what he thought he would be worth if he hadn’t given away so much, Mr. George answered without hesitation, “Probably nothing.”
Mr. George enjoyed serving his community, and his legacy lives on through our associates. Part of our mission statement is to be involved as responsible citizens in our communities — we do this by supporting many organizations, such as Food for Sharing, March of Dimes and United Way.
For Publix, being involved in our communities just makes sense. Our customers notice when associates care about the same efforts they care about. Giving back isn’t just the right thing to do; giving back is part of our Publix culture.

Publix has a long-standing tradition of being the kind of company a community can count on, beginning with our founding in 1930.
Publix is proud of our accomplishments as a caring employer, industry leader, and member of the community.
