 Food Bank benefits from Publix  ”Food For Sharing” Campaign

Publix recently delivered 18,708 pounds of food to the Wiregrass Food Bank as part of the Publix “Food For Sharing” Campaign. The food will provide 14,616 meals to help feed the hungry in Houston, Henry, Dale, Coffee, Geneva, and Barbour Counties in the Wiregrass. The food comes from drives during the spring and fall, when donation cards representing three predesigned levels of giving are made available to Publix customers at the checkout. Once the customer selects a donation level, the cashier scans the card and the amount is added to the customer’s total order. Thank you, Publix, and thank you, Publix customers for supporting the Food Bank and helping us to carry out our mission!IMG_4989 FullSizeRender IMG_4986
