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

CHARLOTTE, NC – May 18, 2018 – Publix Super Markets is distributing more than $540,000 from its Food For All® 2017 fundraiser to 24 Charlotte division area nonprofit organizations.

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

“We’re pleased to be a part of this successful fundraiser which benefits so many worthwhile non-profit agencies,” said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. “Thanks to the support of our generous customers and associates, our annual Food For All campaign continues to make a significant impact on the communities we serve.”

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.

“Making Change is honored to be a part of the Publix Food For All fundraiser to help raise funds for local nonprofits year after year,” said Dave McConnell, president and CEO of Making Change. “We applaud Publix for their continued dedication to helping support self-sufficiency and the fight to end hunger within their communities.”
