Matching its donation made for Thanksgiving, Publix is giving another 1.3 million pounds of fresh produce to 32 Feeding America partner food banks in eight states this holiday season. 

The donations are part of the company’s biannual “Feeding More Together” register campaign. Publix gives $10 million each year to purchase and deliver produce to the food banks. Customer donations provide shelf-stable and additional perishable food for local pantries. 

In 2023, Publix has given more than 24 million pounds of produce to Feeding America partner food banks.

“As we head into a season that should be full of joy, many families and individuals in our communities struggle to put food on their tables,” said CEO Todd Jones

“We want to help make this time a little brighter by providing fresh produce for people in need. At Publix, we’re committed to helping alleviate hunger and doing good, together for our communities.”
