Winn Dixie Raises $12,000 To Feed Brevard's Hungry School Kids

MELBOURNE, Florida -- Through customer donations, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., presented a $12,000 donation check to the Children’s Hunger Project of Brevard County to support the nonprofit’s efforts to provide hungry children with weekend food packs during the school year. 

Winn-Dixie provided free delivery of the food funded by United Way/Project Hunger while store directors, participating nonprofits and 1,000 volunteers assembled more than 100,000 meals at a large food pack assembly event held at the Melbourne Brevard Community College Campus today.


Winn-Dixie's donation program resulted in more than $150,000 raised by customers in six weeks for 75 nonprofit organizations within the grocer’s operating area.
