Publix Super Markets Charities announced a second $1 million donation to Feeding America® member food banks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. This donation provides support to food pantries and meal programs in the communities surrounding our stores and brings Publix Charities’ total contribution in support of hunger relief efforts during the pandemic to $2 million.
“As we continue to see an increase in the number of people facing food insecurity during this pandemic, we are grateful to Publix Super Markets Charities for this additional contribution in support of Feeding America member food banks,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “This donation will provide meals and essential supplies to our neighbors and continues to support our ongoing commitment to alleviating hunger in the communities we serve.”
The $1 million donation will be distributed to Feeding America food banks throughout our seven-state operating area.
