Through their 2011 holiday Food For All point-of-purchase fundraiser, Publix Super Markets Lakeland Division and their customers collectively raised $429,665.23 to benefit local charitable organizations.  The annual fundraiser, which features burgundy and gold boards stocked with $1, $3 and $5 donation coupons, appeared at checkout stands from November 13, 2011-December 24, 2011.  Customers donate to the program by handing a donation coupon to the cashier to be scanned, and the amount is added to the customer’s grocery total.  The year prior, $354,239.76 was raised.

Proceeds from Publix Lakeland Division’s 2011 Food For All program will benefit 16 regional non-profit agencies.  The beneficiaries include:  Agape Food Bank (c/o Catholic Charities), All Faiths Food Bank, Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Feeding America of Tampa Bay, Guadalupe Center of Immokalee, Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, Immokalee Child Care Center, Lake Cares Food Pantry, Mayor’s Feed the Hungry Program, Meals on Wheels Plus, Neighborly Care Network-Sunshine Center, The Salvation Army of Hillsborough County, Suncoast Food Bank, Trinity Café, The Volunteer Way and We Care Food Pantry.  Check presentations took place in May 2012.

“We are so thankful for the continued generosity of our customers, and the dedication of Publix associates to our annual Food For All campaign,” said Shannon Patten, Media and Community Relations Manager for Publix Super Markets Lakeland Division.  “In 2011 we increased our contributions by more than $75,000, and we are thrilled with the results.”
