PUBLIX SUPER MARKETS MIAMI DIVISION AND CUSTOMERS RAISE OVER $1.5 MILLION FOR COMMUNITY NON-PROFITS THROUGH ANNUAL FOOD FOR ALL CAMPAIGN

MIAMI, FL- Publix Super Markets Miami Division’s holiday Food For All program successfully raised $1,539,456.28 to benefit local and regional non-profit organizations throughout South Florida.  The six-week fundraiser appeared in stores from November 14 through December 24, 2010, and customers contributed simply by selecting a $1, $3 and $5 donation coupon at the register as they paid for groceries.  Cashiers scanned the coupons, and the donation amounts were added to their final grocery bill.  Publix will distribute grants to over 65 charitable organizations during a check presentation on March 30, 2011.

“Publix customers and associates continued to show tremendous support for our annual Food For All program in 2010,” said Bill Fauerbach, Publix Miami Division’s Vice President of Retail Operations. “It was a landmark year for our fundraising efforts.”
