Winn Dixie Asks Customers to ‘Give a Meal’ This Holiday Season

Did you know that there are nearly 49 million Americans who are hungry, and that more than 16 million, or 1 in 5 of those are children?  I had no idea there were so many hungry people in this country!

Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. has joined forces with Feeding America to launch the Give a Meal program, which gives Winn-Dixie guests and team members the opportunity to help provide food to nearly 37 million Americans — including more than 14 million children — facing hunger this holiday season.

Here’s how it works:

Give a Meal runs through Jan. 3 and is available in all of Winn-Dixie’s 482 stores in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. Every $1 donated during the campaign helps provide eight meals to people in need.

There are three simple ways for to support the Give a Meal effort:

1.Donate at the register — this allows guests or team members to make a $1 or greater donation when purchasing groceries;

2.Donate online at by charging a donation to a credit card;

3.Purchase Winn-Dixie brand products — through vendor support, when a guest or team member purchases a designated Winn-Dixie brand product, a portion of the purchase will be donated to Feeding America.

Some stores will also offer prepackaged nonperishables in $5 and $10 increments that can be donated to the regional food bank immediately after purchase at marked collection barrels near the store entrance.  You can also visit the Feeding America website ( to see a running counter that tallies the number of meals that have been donated during the campaign.
