Day 55 Publix
Publix, an American supermarket chain, is purchasing excess produce and milk from farmers in its operating area and donating it to food banks.
Food suppliers have lost their usual buyers amid closures of schools, restaurants, and hotels. Issues in the supply chain have meant that dairy farmers have been forced to dump thousands of gallons of milk and unsold produce has gone to waste.
The southeastern grocery chain said it would give purchased produce and milk directly to Feeding America food banks.
