Publix Super Markets is distributing $1,837,505 from its Food For All 2017 fundraiser to 68 nonprofit organizations in its Atlanta division, which includes Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. The annual campaign raises funds to support agencies that fight hunger and advocate for self-sufficiency on a local and regional level.
“We are thankful for our generous customers and associates,” said Brenda Reid, Publix media and community relations manager, Atlanta division. “Through our annual Food For All campaign we can help make a difference in our communities every year.”
During the three-week campaign, Nov. 1-22, 2017, Publix customers and associates participated in the campaign by adding a $1, $3 or $5 donation to their grocery bill. The coupon denominations were scanned during checkout by a Publix associate and applied to customers’ purchase total. Food For All is a program of Making Change, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that has partnered with Publix since 1988.
“Making Change is honored to be a part of the Publix Food For All fundraiser to help raise funds for local nonprofits year after year,” said Dave McConnell, Making Change president and CEO. “We applaud Publix for their continued dedication to helping support self-sufficiency and the fight to end hunger within their communities.”
