ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 4, 2013 - Publix Super Markets, Inc., has teamed up with local food banks and feeding organizations to help eliminate hunger throughout the southeast this holiday season. (See list below of partners in your area.) Publix customers are encouraged to stop by their neighborhood store between Thursday, Nov. 7 and Wednesday, Nov. 27 to donate towards this program.

"Making a donation to help feed those in need has never been easier," said Brenda Reid, media and community relations manager for Publix. A Food for Sharing display will be located near the registers. Customers may select the amount that they would like to give, based on recipes of the most needed items in the community. Donations range from $4.73 to $13.48. The amount for the recipe selected will be scanned into the register as a part of the customers' receipts. As a token of appreciation a Food for Sharing reusable bag will be given to customers who donate to the program.

Publix is privately owned and operated by its 163,000 employees, with 2012 sales of $27.5 billion. Currently Publix has 1,077 stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee. The company has been named one of FORTUNE's "100 Best Companies to Work For in America" for 16 consecutive years. In addition, Publix's dedication to superior quality and customer service is recognized as tops in the grocery business, most recently by an American Customer Satisfaction Index survey.
