“Break from Hunger” program aims to feed hungry children through $2 meal box

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Southeastern Grocers Inc. and the SEG Gives Foundation are offering something called the “Break from Hunger” meal.

The meal is going to be available at three different grocery stores including Winn-Dixie.

According to Southeastern Grocers Inc, “Now through Labor Day, customers and associates ages 17 and younger can purchase a specially prepared “Student Summer Lunch Pack” meal box at any Winn-Dixie deli department for only $2.”

One dollar from each purchase will then go to Feeding America.

The end goal for Southeastern Grocers Inc, is to “donate the equivalent of one million meals to the community.”

So what will be in the meal boxes?

Southeastern Grocers Inc, says the meal box will contain “either a ham or turkey sandwich, chips, a fresh fruit item and a bottle of water.”
