During Hunger Action Month, Publix is highlighting the many ways the company helps alleviate hunger year-round. According to Feeding America, 1 in 9 Americans face food insecurity, and within Publix’s seven-state operating area, more than 8 million people face hunger every day.
As a food retailer, Publix is committed to helping feed those in need in the communities it serves. “Having food on the table is an essential need that millions of people throughout our communities struggle with every day. As a food retailer, helping provide nourishing meals to our neighbors in need is at the heart of who we are,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “It is our privilege to join our customers in helping to alleviate hunger and do good together for our communities.”
As a community partner and supporter, Publix employees have also packed meals and Publix managers donated food to help feed hungry kids in Brevard.
