Program Allows Customers to Donate to United Way’s Fishermen’s Relief Fund

NEW ORLEANS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--People wanting to help the Louisiana fishermen affected by
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill off the Gulf Coast can do so when they buy groceries at any of the 36 neighborhood
Winn-Dixie Stores (NASDAQ: WINN) in the New Orleans area.

Winn-Dixie has implemented its “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” program, a convenient way customers can donate
any amount between 50 cents and $500 directly to the United Way of Greater New Orleans as they pay for their
groceries. The cashier will scan a special Neighbors Helping Neighbors bar code, which automatically adds the
amount designated by the customer to the total bill.

The United Way of Greater New Orleans is assisting the fishermen of St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes by
providing food, counseling and other assistance to the fishing communities in Louisiana’s Mississippi River Delta
affected by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Winn-Dixie announced the program on Friday when the grocer and several of its vendor partners delivered three
semi-trailers loaded with 42,000 pounds of food and 28,800 gallons of bottled water to the Second Harvest Food
Bank for distribution to food banks serving the two Mississippi River delta parishes.
