Produce: Food Donation

Helping Earth. Helping People.

As part of our mission, we are intolerant of waste and involved as responsible citizens in our communities. By establishing a perishable recovery program and partnering with Feeding America® member food banks, we stay connected to our local communities and area food banks.

Perishable recovery food donations made through Publix within our communities support feeding those in need. Publix provides an invaluable community service through its partnership with Feeding America®. Donating unsalable yet still consumable products provides individuals and families facing hunger a way to bring more food to the table.

Our Publix stores provided Feeding America with 84 million pounds of donated food in 2018, 61 million pounds of donated food in 2017, 56.6 million pounds in 2016, 48.7 million pounds in 2015, 43 million pounds of food in 2014, and 36 million pounds in 2013.
