Southeastern Grocers is donating more than 1,000 turkeys to Feeding America affiliates throughout the Southeast to help feed the one in eight people who will struggle with hunger this Thanksgiving.

The approximately 11,000 pounds of turkey can provide nearly 10,000 much needed meals to hungry families throughout the Bi-Lo, Harveys and Winn-Dixie footprints.

Ian McLeod, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said, “This Thanksgiving we wanted to do our part to help provide the most important piece of the Thanksgiving meal to adults, children and families facing hunger in our communities this holiday. Our customers showed us how much they appreciate affordable Thanksgiving prices when we sold 10 million pounds of turkey last Thanksgiving. We remain committed to delivering great value and to making Thanksgiving less stressful and more enjoyable for all of our customers this year as well.”

Southeastern Grocers says it also is looking after its customers this Thanksgiving.

On Nov. 19-20, Bi-Lo, Harveys and Winn-Dixie customers can purchase one Frozen Honeysuckle White Turkey of any size or weight for $6 when customers spend $30 of their Thanksgiving shopping with Bi-Lo, Harveys and Winn-Dixie, while supplies last.

Customers will have the opportunity to pick out their own personal high-quality, Grade A Turkey from a variety of sizes, all for one low price, the company says.

The average weight of a Thanksgiving turkey is 15 pounds—costing customers 40 cents per pound. This means at $6, customers will be able to buy a 24-pound turkey for 25 cents per pound.

All Bi-L0, Harveys and Winn-Dixie stores will open at their normal hours and close at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
