The donation is part of a larger partnership with Feeding America® food banks to host mobile food pantries across the Southeast during the holiday season.

During this ongoing effort to fight food insecurity, SEG will distribute more than $200,000 of food to neighbors in need and provide associates the hands-on opportunity to positively impact communities in the Southeast.

Additionally, now through Dec. 15, customers are encouraged to help eliminate food insecurity and support families in need during the holidays by simply donating to the cause at checkout as they shop their neighborhood Winn-Dixie and Fresco y Más store.
