Southeastern Grocers Commits to Fighting Hunger
July 6, 2018
Southeastern Grocers, Inc. (SEG), parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie stores, together with the SEG Gives Foundation, has donated $25,000 worth of fresh produce and canned goods to Harvest Hope Food Bank as part of a companywide Hunger Relief Program with dedicated partner, Feeding America®, to continue the fight against hunger.
“We care passionately about our communities and the causes that impact our associates, customers and neighbors,” said Anthony Hucker, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers. “We know food insecurity deeply impacts the Southeast, which is why our partnership with Feeding America is imperative to our charitable initiatives. Our Feeding America partner food banks are lifelines for those who may not have access to a healthy meal, especially over the summer. That is why we are proud to implement the Hunger Relief Program to raise funds in our stores, provide meals through our mobile pantries and food donations to meet essential nutrition for adults, children and seniors throughout the Southeast.”
“We are grateful to the SEG Gives Foundation for their continued efforts in the fight to end hunger in the communities where their stores are located,” said Matt Knott, President of Feeding America. “By encouraging customers and employees alike to give back, as well as donating valuable food, they are taking a crucial step to end hunger for their neighbors across the Southeastern region of the United States.”
