Food For All® fundraiser delivers more than $5.8 million to support hunger relief and self-sufficiency across the southeast

LAKELAND, Fla. – Feb. 7, 2018 – Publix Super Markets is distributing $1,072,508 from its Food For All® 2017 fundraiser to 34 Lakeland division nonprofit organizations.

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

“Each year we look forward to the Food For All fundraiser and want to thank all of the Publix customers and associates for their participation and generosity,” said Brian West, Publix media and community relations manager, Lakeland division. “The 2017 campaign theme was ‘Give Hope’ and I believe that given this year’s campaign success, it did just that.”

During the 3-week campaign, November 1-22, 2017, Publix customers and associates participated in the campaign by adding a $1, $3, or $5 donation to their grocery bill. The coupon denominations were scanned during checkout by a Publix associate and applied to their purchase total. Food For All is a program of Making Change®, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that has partnered with Publix since 1988 to create a successful campaign.
