Publix is a champion for healthy families

Publix and March of Dimes

For nearly three decades, Publix Super Markets has been a leading March of Dimes corporate partner, helping us drive efforts that lead the fight against the nation’s maternal and infant health crisis.

Publix is based in Lakeland, Florida, with 1,345 retail stores across seven states. Their annual in-store campaign, which raises funds one dollar at time at the register, coupled with associate giving, has achieved remarkable results in vital support and programs to promote healthy moms and strong babies.

The dollars donated by Publix's customers and associates directly impact March of Dimes' mission to improve the health of moms and babies. The funds raised help more than 9 million individuals access vital education to support them during their pregnancy journey, provide training and education to more than 33,000 healthcare professionals, and supply critical information and medical supplies for NICU families.

In addition, thousands of their associates are also active in their local communities by participating in March for Babies as part of the Publix team or serving on boards and committees.
