The Publix Food for Sharing drive is on now through Nov. 23 at all Publix Super Markets in Southwest Florida.
Thanksgiving is Nov. 24, and in the weeks leading up to the holiday, Publix offers donation cards for various levels of giving that customers may choose from. This offers an opportunity for them to continue showing they care by helping those who may not know where their next meal is coming from.
The cards show the different “recipe” of food items each level of giving will buy. The customer chooses a card and gives it to the cashier, where it will be scanned and the amount added to the total order.
The giving levels are Bronze, at $4.67; Silver, at $10.46; and Gold at $13.74. Each level has a different “recipe,” or combination of products from this list: Plumrose Ham, Starkist Tuna, fruit cocktail, peanut butter, grape jelly, green beans, rice, Dinty Moore Beef Stew, macaroni and cheese, Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, and fruit and grain bars.
Publix then sends the orders to the Harry Chapin Food Bank and other participating food banks across the chain’s operating area.
For more information or to make a donation, call (239) 334-7007 or visit harrychapinfoodbank.org.
