Bi-Lo, Winn-Dixie launch hunger relief program

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Both Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie on Thursday launched its Holiday Hunger Relief Program to help eliminate hunger in local communities this holiday season. From now through Dec. 24, customers can help provide meals for families in need by donating at any store register when they purchase groceries.

“We want the holidays to be a time of joy and thankfulness for everyone we serve in our communities,” stated Mary Kellmanson, SVP marketing. “Our partnership with Feeding America offers a meaningful way for the community to come together and support our neighbors.”

Every dollar donated goes directly to local Feeding America food banks in the communities that each store serves. Winn-Dixie customers donated more than $120,000 during the grocer’s Summer Hunger Relief Backpack Program, helping fill backpacks with fresh, healthy foods for children in need. And Bi-Lo customers donated more than $235,000.
