Miami's District 5 community maintains many small, local grocers; Winn-Dixie operates the only major grocery store in Liberty City area.
Winn-Dixie said it received this special recognition for the service it provides inside the store, for the company's longstanding commitment to hiring young people from the community, and for its support of the many Liberty City neighborhood organizations, including the Optimist Club, the Liberty City Trust, and the Northwestern High School band.
