Publix Charities has supported Talbot House Ministries for well over a decade, and we can’t thank them enough for all their support. Most recently, Publix Super Market Charities contributed $35,000 towards our hunger relief programs! This gift will provide critical funding to sustain our daily meals and food pantry, providing nutritious meals and groceries to our food insecure neighbors.

However, Publix doesn’t just support us with donations of food and financial contributions. They also frequently donate their time through the Publix Serves program, in which groups of Publix employees volunteer at Talbot House every year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Publix has gone above and beyond to support Talbot House through a blanket drive and by supplying extra bags to support our takeaway lunches and expanded food pantry.

Furthermore, Publix incorporates community outreach into new endeavors like their innovative store brand, GreenWise Market. GreenWise Market’s rewards program allows shoppers to support Talbot House Ministries with every purchase. You can read more about the GreenWise’s rewards program here. 

Publix originated right here in Polk County in 1930 and has been thriving ever since. George W. Jenkins, the late founder of Publix Super Markets Inc., believed in treating everyone like family. His commitment left a lasting impression on our community which survives to this day. Talbot House Ministries follow a similar philosophy, treating the community as family in our pursuit to assist the homeless, poor, and impoverished. We will forever be grateful to share such a generous community with organizations like Publix.

Thank you, Publix, for your gracious support!
