Publix Super Markets Charities Donates $1 Million to Feeding America Member Food Banks


As part of Publix Super Markets Charities' ongoing support of hunger relief efforts and to help communities in our area during the coronavirus pandemic, Publix Charities announced today it will donate $1 million to Feeding America member food banks across the Southeast.

"I want to thank Publix Super Markets Charities for this generous donation," said Publix CEO Todd Jones. "During these unprecedented times that have affected nearly every aspect of our day-to-day lives, many people may not know where their next meal is coming from. This donation will provide assistance to those impacted and help continue the work that Publix, Publix Charities and Feeding America do every day to alleviate hunger in the communities we serve."

"Feeding America is thankful to Publix Super Markets Charities for its generous support of member food banks across the Southeast during this time of increased need," said Feeding America Vice President of Corporate Partnerships Lauren Biedron.
