9/23/2015. Publix Super Markets connects its National Food Safety Education Month outreach (September) with its’ Publix Ultimate Food Safe Tailgate Experience! Publix is the official supermarket of four National Football League teams – the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Atlanta Falcons—and also supports area college football.
Throughout September Publix is supporting food-safe tailgating events for fans of all the teams – including handing out the Publix Chill Checker and thermometers to fans!
While food safety is every day at Publix, in September especially the company stresses the importance of food safety with its’ associates –while they are at work through weekly communications and while at home through its’ associate website.
In September Publix is also working with Newspapers in Education to deliver a 20-page food safety curriculum program for high school students throughout the Southeastern US. Each newspaper has a Publix Chill Checker attached to the front page. A social media campaign encourages these students to use their Publix Chill Checker and post to Instagram.
