WINN-DIXIE/THE SALVATION ARMY REPORT CONTRIBUTIONS FOR WAR AGAINST HUNGER

 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- When customers of Winn- Dixie Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WIN) say "EVEN IT UP!" at checkout, they are actually requesting that the small change from their grocery purchases help to feed the hungry.
 The cashier rounds off the customers' total grocery order to the next dollar, the donation is reflected on the grocery receipt, and the change is diverted into the Salvation Army fund targeting the war against hunger.
 The EVEN IT UP fund has grown steadily since its inception in 1989, with more than $413,458 having been converted into food certificates to feed hungry families across the Sunbelt states.
 The Salvation Army disburses the food certificates to the neediest. The food certificates are redeemable at all Winn-Dixie stores for nutritional perishables, including produce, dairy products, fresh and smoked meats which cannot be distributed from food banks equipped to handle only non-refrigerated foods.
 Participating Winn-Dixie store locations throughout Alabama, the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi are identified by the EVEN IT UP sign at checkout.
