The Community Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their community and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each purchase goes to a local nonprofit in need. Donations from this program support groups focused on education, civic, health & wellness, hunger relief, military/veterans and disaster relief organizations.
We work with local food pantries and food banks to provide nourishing meals to those in need. According to Feeding America, every $1 donation allows partners to secure and distribute 10 meals to those in need.

Every month, leadership at each store location chooses a local nonprofit to be the default beneficiary from the Community Bag Program. This organization’s name is posted on the reusable bag rack during their benefiting month
Yes. We are committed to serving the communities in which we live and work, so if your nonprofit is 501(c)(3) certified, then visit our Submit An Organization to participate in this program.
Community Bags are available at all Winn-Dixie, Fresco y Más and Harveys locations. Look for them at registers and on the reusable bag rack. If you can’t find them, just ask a staff member where they are. They’ll be happy to show you!
You can also purchase these bags in bulk - they make great gifts for friends, family, colleagues, and group members. Show them you care about them, the community, and the environment! For information on bulk orders, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will send donation checks directly to selected nonprofits earning $10 or more in the Community Bag Program approximately 10-12 weeks after their selected month ends. Selected nonprofits earning less than $10 in their selected month will be sent a donation check when the accumulated benefits reach at least $10 or at the end of the year.
