HUNGER FIGHT Awarded Grant from Publix Super Markets Charities

Published Tuesday, September 15, 2020

 

HUNGER FIGHT, Inc. recently announced receipt of a grant from Publix Super Markets Charities in support of their meals program. The grant is designated to produce and distribute meal packs to children, families and seniors impacted by the COVID19 pandemic

 

Thanks to the generous grant donation from Publix Super Markets Charities, Hunger Fight will continue working with First Coast schools and other collaborating feeding organizations to ensure that our meals are distributed to those in need in our community.      

 

“We are very grateful for the support of Publix Super Markets Charities,” said Sherri Porter, Founder and Executive Director of Hunger Fight. “To be recognized and supported for the work we do in addressing the issues of hunger by an organization so well-known in our communities inspires us to continue making a difference in the lives of the children, families and seniors we serve.”

 

The effect of this grant and the food it will provide is significant. The COVID19 pandemic continues to negatively impact our communities with no end in sight and the need increases almost daily. Thanks to Publix Charities, Hunger Fight will continue to get food to those who are in need during these challenging times.
