LAKELAND, Fla., Nov. 9, 2022 — Publix and its customers are working to help alleviate hunger in our communities through our Feeding More Together register campaign. Hunger knows no boundaries, and it touches every community in the country. In fact, 34 million people face hunger in the U.S., including more than 9 million children.
Customers donate dollars
Starting today, customers can donate any dollar amount at the register to assist people affected by food insecurity. Customer donations provide dollar credits that allow local and Feeding America member food banks and pantries to select from nonperishable food items to serve their clients.
Publix donates produce
The first $10 million in donations will be matched by Publix through the purchase of produce from farmers and donations to 20 Feeding America member food banks. These donations provide fresh fruits and vegetables to people facing hunger.
Giving back is a part of Publix’s culture
“Our founder, George Jenkins, believed in giving back to our communities,” said Publix’s Director of Community Relations Dwaine Stevens. “We want to make it easy to do good together, and our Feeding More Together campaign does just that.”
