NEW ORLEANS – Winn-Dixie is proud to announce the donation of $30,000 to the Krewe of Red Beans in support of the organization’s leading initiative, Feed the Second Line, which provides relief to local musicians and artists who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was made possible thanks to the generous contributions of customers and associates who rounded up their grocery bill total or made a donation of their choice at Louisiana Winn-Dixie stores as part of the grocer’s Carnival season community donation program.
Winn-Dixie has served Louisiana customers for more than six and a half decades and remains steadfast in its commitment to lift up and support local organizations that reflect the diversity of the communities it serves and embody local traditions and native culture such as the Krewe of Red Beans and Feed the Second Line.
Joey Medina, Regional Vice President for Winn-Dixie, said, “We’re grateful for our ongoing partnership with Krewe of Red Beans and proud to support the great work they do to shine light on Louisiana’s traditions and the people that bring them to life. Local musicians and artists are at the center of Louisiana’s rich heritage and we are honored to help provide essential support to our culture bearers when they need it the most. At Winn-Dixie, our Louisiana roots run deep and we remain committed to the people of this state – whether it’s lifting them up in times of great need or providing quality products to make groceries – we’re the neighbor they can always count on.”
With 28 stores in Louisiana and 65 years of service to the state’s diverse communities, Winn-Dixie strives to provide customers with unique and personalized shopping experiences with fresh concepts and extensive offerings. As part of its ongoing commitment to its Louisiana customers, Winn-Dixie unveiled four newly remodeled stores in Baton Rouge, Destrehan and Franklinton during the month of March:
