SEG Gives Foundation
The Southeastern Grocers Gives Foundation is the charitable arm of Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarkets, and Winn-Dixie stores. The SEG Gives Foundation is the 501(c)(3) entity that aligns our giving with the causes that are important to the communities we serve. Our three charitable pillars include hunger relief, disaster relief, and supporting our military families and veterans.
Romay Davis Belonging, Inclusion and Diversity Grant Program,
supported by the SEG Gives Foundation
As a country, we have watched with sadness as tragic and disturbing events have taken place across our country. At Southeastern Grocers, we are committed to a culture of belonging, and we take pride in being an inclusive environment where we celebrate differences. To help support the communities that we serve and battle the racial prejudice and social inequality in America, the charitable arm of Southeastern Grocers, the SEG Gives Foundation, has launched the Romay Davis Belonging, Inclusion and Diversity Grant Program. This program will support local nonprofit organizations and their work to serve diverse sectors and address racial disparities in health care and food insecurity. Organizations throughout the Southeast can apply for grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. Grants will be awarded in December. All grantees and programs must operate within SEG’s footprint.

In partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, and its local food bank partners, we are committed to fighting food insecurity in our communities. In 2019, we proudly provided more than 22 million meals to those in need throughout our communities.
Military & Veterans
In honor of the sacrifices made by military members and their families, we are proud to partner with Folds of Honor to provide educational scholarships to the families of injured or fallen military members. In 2019, we donated more than $1.2 million, which provided at least 243 educational scholarships to the children and spouses impacted by a loved one’s sacrifice for the United States military. It is our way of showing gratitude for their honorable service.
We have a longstanding partnership, spanning more than 50 years and totaling donations of more than $10 million, with the American Red Cross, a national nonprofit dedicated to preventing and lessening human suffering in the face of emergencies and disasters. In 2019, we donated more than $675,000 to help those impacted by natural disasters. The SEG Gives Foundation is proud to be an official Red Cross Disaster Responder Partner.
SE Grocers Launches Community Bag with a Giving Tag Program
The reusable bag program empowers customers to make a difference in the communities they live and work in while helping the environment. With each purchase of a reusable Community Bag with the Giving Tag, customers can direct a $1 donation to the non-profit of their choice to benefit the work a local charity is doing in their community. The specially designed reusable bags are from recycled materials, and can be found at registers and on the reusable bag rack at all BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores in the Southeast.
Our Commitment to Cage-Free Eggs
At Southeastern Grocers, we firmly believe that animals raised for food should be treated and cared for humanely.
In 2016, we made a pledge to convert all of our own brand eggs to cage-free by 2017. In fact, we were one of the first grocers of our size to make such a big commitment.
We’re very proud that we fulfilled that promise and now we’re working towards making all our eggs cage-free by 2025, with the cooperation of our supplier partners.
This is important to our customers and it’s important to us, so we continue to cooperate with well-respected organizations and experts in the field to ensure that we’re setting a high standard for best practices in our animal welfare policies.
For your convenience, we offer our Naturally Better cage-free eggs in a broad range of our most popular quantities and specialties:
- Organic Dozen
- Hard Boiled (6-Count)
At Southeastern Grocers we are committed to providing you humanly raised cage-free eggs. Our suppliers abide by either of the following standards:Humane Farm Animal Care Standards
