MIAMI – March 22, 2017  Publix Super Markets is distributing nearly $1.9 million from its Food For All® 2016 fundraiser to 72 South Florida nonprofit organizations.

The annual campaign distributes funds to support programs that fight hunger and advocate for self-sufficiency on a local and regional level.

“Our stores in Miami and the surrounding area are pleased to participate in this annual fundraiser,” said Nicole Krauss, Publix media and community relations manager, Miami division. “Thanks to the generosity of our customers – and the enthusiasm of our associates – the campaign is helping to make a difference in the lives of so many in the communities we serve.”

In December 2016, Publix customers and associates contributed to the campaign by purchasing donation coupons in $1, $3, or $5 amounts that were scanned during checkout and added to their purchase total.

“We commend Publix for their continued commitment to social responsibility and good corporate citizenship, and are honored to help facilitate their annual Food For All fundraiser,” said Dave McConnell, president and CEO of making change. “All told, Publix is delivering more than $5 million from the 2016 campaign to nonprofit organizations across their southeastern footprint, representing a 25 percent increase over the 2015 campaign.”
