Treasure Coast Food Bank recently received $150,000 from Publix Super Markets’ 2017 Food for All fundraiser.
The annual campaign raises money to support agencies that fight hunger and advocate for self-sufficiency on a local and regional level.
“The Food For All campaign is a wonderful way for our community to give to those who struggle with hunger,” said Judith Cruz, President and CEO of Treasure Coast Food Bank. “We’re proud to partner with Publix on this and so many other programs, and we’re thankful to have so many people on the Treasure Coast who donate to the Food For All campaign.”
During the 3-week campaign held in November, Publix customers and associates participated by adding a $1, $3, or $5 donation to their grocery bill. The campaign raised more than $2 million, which is being distributed to 76 South Florida non-profit agencies.
“We are so thankful to the Publix customers and associates who help make the Food For All Campaign a success every year,” said Nicole Krauss, Publix media and community relations manager, Miami Division.
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.
