Winn Dixie asks  guests to  “GIVE A MEAL”

   Winn-Dixie Stores has joined 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. Give a Meal runs through Jan. 3 and is available in all of Winn-Dixie’s stores.

   Every $1 donated during the campaign helps provide eight meals to people in need.

   To participate: 

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 www.winn-dixie.com/giveameal 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.

 In addition, some stores will 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 exit.
