JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--()--Today, Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie stores, is celebrating the first birthday of the Fresco y Más banner by announcing its first official partnership with The League Against Cancer (La Liga Contra el Cancer), an organization that provides much-needed medical care for underserved cancer patients in South Florida.

The first Fresco y Más location opened its doors on June 15, 2016 in Hialeah, Fla., providing customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience with products and services that meet the needs of the community.

Today’s unveiling of seven new stores during ribbon cutting ceremonies at 10 a.m. includes the first Fresco y Más location in Broward County, expanding the banner to 18 stores in its first year.

To support the historic partnership, all 18 Fresco y Más stores will be hosting a Profit Day (see store for details), donating all profits generated on June 14, 2017 to The League Against Cancer.

Ian McLeod, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said, “Since opening our doors in Hialeah one year ago, Fresco y Más has seen fantastic success and support from customers in each community we now operate in. The League Against Cancer is an organization our customers have told us is important to them, so we are kicking off our first official community partnership by hosting a Profit Day at all 18 of our Fresco y Más stores, donating every last cent of profit to The League Against Cancer.

“As Fresco y Más enters its second year we continue to be dedicated to providing our customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience and supporting organizations that provide invaluable services to the communities we operate in.”

Adriana Cora, Vice President of The League Against Cancer, said, “Our staff, patients and supports are humbled by the commitment Fresco y Más is making with the first-ever donation of this kind in the organization’s history. This new partnership will allow us to build on the more than 60,000 men, women and children who will able to receive world-class medical treatment, screenings and support from the League Against Cancer."

Fresco y Más’ new “Low Price every day” program includes more than 800 popular products that help shoppers save more on the quality items they buy every day, and are easily found in store with distinctive green and yellow arrow signage throughout the store. Prices will be at the same low price for at least 6 months for savings our customers can count on. More Savings! More Service! More for you!

Shoppers will immediately notice the enhancements throughout the seven new Fresco y Más stores, including:

  • An all-new, full-service Latin butcher shop (Carniceria) offering an expanded selection of fresh, custom cut meats to better serve our customers.
  • Refreshed produce department featuring a farmer’s market setting with a wider selection of tropical fruits.
