Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BILO, rewarded healthcare and first responders with free groceries during Monday night’s health care professionals and first responders shopping hour.

The community heroes shopping in all BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie stores throughout seven states in the Southeast were surprised with a $0 grocery total at the register.

“Southeastern Grocers is dedicated to being there for the community when they need us the most, and we believe there is no better time than now to show acts of kindness,” Anthony Hucker, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said. “Our heroic health care professionals and first responders are on the front line every day as they work tirelessly to make our communities safer, and we want to do our part to thank

Southeastern Grocers was moved by the recent generosity of well-known filmmaker and actor Tyler Perry. Perry partnered with Winn-Dixie on Wednesday, April 8 during the senior and high-risk shopping hour to purchase groceries for customers at all 29 Louisiana stores.”

The grocer is also offering more than 5,000 positions to individuals who have been affected by restricted working hours or job loss as a result of mandated store and restaurant closures due to COVID-19.
