Publix broke ground on its first store in Louisville, Kentucky, located at the northwest corner of Terra Crossing Boulevard and Old Henry Road in Jefferson County. Kentucky will mark Publix’s eighth state of operation. The Terra Crossing Shopping Center, 2500 Terra Crossing Blvd., is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023. It will feature a 55,701-square-foot store with a drive-thru Publix Pharmacy and an adjacent 3,200-square-foot Publix Liquors offering beer, wine and spirits. This will be the first Publix Liquors located outside the state of Florida.
Publix announced today that the company has donated more than 50 million pounds of produce as part of its initiative to support farmers and food banks in the Southeast. Launched in response to farmers being forced to discard produce they could no longer sell due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Publix began purchasing produce directly from impacted farmers and donating it to food banks throughout the company’s operating area.
Currently, 38 million people in the United States face hunger, but Publix, along with its customers, is working to help put food on the tables of neighbors in need through Feeding More Together. This campaign supports food banks throughout the Southeast in two ways: with nonperishable food items and with fresh produce purchased from Southeastern farmers.
1 in 8 people in America faces hunger. To help put food on the tables of people in need, Publix has donated nearly 400 million meals over the last two years. Due to the pandemic, the number of people turning to food banks for assistance increased and the need remains high. In addition to the company’s annual register campaigns for hunger alleviation and in-store perishable recovery program, in April of 2020 Publix began purchasing and donating fresh fruits and vegetables to Feeding America® member food banks. Through these combined efforts, Publix and its customers have helped meet the growing need in their communities.
Publix has been named one of America’s Best Employers for Veterans by Forbes, ranking No. 38 of 200 total companies and No. 3 of 16 in the retail and wholesale industry.
