Publix has worked for decades to help the hungry in the areas we serve. Today, as the coronavirus pandemic affects our communities, there is an increased need for this effort. Here are some ways in which Publix, our customers, and Publix Charities help to feed our neighbors in need.
Publix Charities is donating $3 million to Feeding America® member food banks and other nonprofit organizations, bringing its total 2020 giving to $5 million.
Since April of 2020, Publix has purchased more than 11 million pounds of produce and 500,000 gallons of milk directly from farmers to donate to Feeding America member food banks throughout the Southeast.
Since 2011, Publix has donated more than 525 million pounds of food, equaling over 400 million meals, including more than 35 million meals already donated in 2020.
Twice each year, Publix offers its Food for Sharing campaign, allowing customers to join in its efforts to alleviate hunger by making donations at checkout.
