Winn-Dixie employees and volunteers dedicated their time Saturday to give back to the community.
Feeding the Gulf Coast and Winn-Dixie teamed up to host a mobile food drive at First Baptist Church in Gulfport in recognition of ‘Hunger Action Month.’
Volunteers were busy loading groceries into vehicles for more than 500 people and families during the morning.
Winn-Dixie Regional Vice President Lynn Rushing says the company is happy to give back to the community in this way. “In Harrison County, one in five people have food insecurities. Winn-Dixie recognizes that and we’re very proud to be able to give back.”
More than $25,000 worth of food was given away during the drive.
