BI-LO is dedicated to supporting the communities we serve and the causes that our customers care about. That is why we work to fight hunger and provide disaster relief in our communities. Learn more about our efforts below!
Through our 50-year long-standing partnership with the American Red Cross, we are able to respond immediately when a disaster strikes the Southeast. Both Hurricane Florence and Michael had a profound impact on our associates, customers, and stores. We were proud to be able to act immediately following each storm to offer relief to our communities.
In the US, 41 million people struggle with hunger, with nearly 7 million of these adults and children living throughout the Southeast. That's 1 in 6 people in the Southeast who are food insecure, meaning they may not know where they will find their next meal. Fighting hunger is a cause we care passionately about, which is why we are proud of the longstanding relationship we have with our official Charity Partner, Feeding America. To date, through the Store Donation Program, more than 14,000,000 lbs. of food has been collected from stores and donated to local food banks.
We are dedicated to supporting the communities we serve and the causes that impact our customers. If you would like to request a donation, sponsorship, or wish to solicit we invite you to complete an application.

It is our way of showing gratitude for their honorable service. In 2019, we raised more than $1.2M which helped to provide more than 240 scholarships.
