Inspired by scripture from the prophet Isaiah, “to share your food with the hungry”, Atlanta’s Jewish Community holds their metro-wide food drive each year during the High Holy Days. 

Outnumber Hunger is an initiative that makes it easy for people to join in the fight against hunger in their own communities.  Specially marked food packages direct consumers to enter codes online at www.OutnumberHunger.com to help Feeding America secure meals for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  For every code entered by March 1, 2014, Outnumber Hunger will donate $0.65 – enough to secure five meals on behalf of local food banks. 

Each spring, Publix Super Markets customers can donate at the register to provide food for hungry families.  As a token of appreciation, customers making a donation will receive a special Food for Sharing reusable bag. 

Having the right school supplies can mean the difference between a passing or a failing grade. That’s why Publix Super Markets will offer the Tools for Back to School campaign July 28 through August 18. Customers and associates are encouraged to donate $5, $7 or $10 which will be used to purchase much-needed school supplies for local teachers, students and non-profit organizations assisting underserved children.
