Company Wide Community Involvement

SEG Gives is the charitable arm of Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie supermarkets and the Southeastern Grocers Foundation, a 501(c)(3) entity dedicated to supporting the communities we serve and the causes that impact our customers. SEG Gives aligns our giving with our charity pillars, providing support to the causes that are important to the communities we serve. We fight hunger in our communities and provide relief to those affected by a natural disaster.

Fighting Hunger

Southeastern Grocers is committed to fighting food insecurity in our communities through our Food Rescue and Bread Donation programs, in partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.

In 2017, we donated over 23 million pounds of food – which is more than 19 million meals for food insecure families in our community.

We’ve launched our Bread Donation program, which allows customers to join us in the fight against hunger. For an entire year, we are donating five cents to Feeding America for every loaf of SE Grocers sandwich bread sold. Simply by shopping with us, customers can share our commitment to the community.

Helping Communities in Need

Southeastern Grocers has a long-standing partnership with the American Red Cross, spanning more than 50 years of donation totaling more than $10 million dollars.
