LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix Super Markets here said Thursday that it would expand its Apron’s recipe program to include a make-ahead meal pilot at two locations. Under Apron’s Make-Ahead Meals, registered customers will find ready-to-assemble meal ingredients they can prepare, package and freeze for home use later; customers can also arrange for Publix to prepare and freeze their meals for pickup. The program will pilot at a Publix location in Jacksonville, Fla., which currently houses a cooking school. A second, stand-alone location will be tested at the site of a current Publix store in Lithia, Fla. Publix also said cooking schools have been added to stores in Boca Raton, Fla., and Alpharetta, Ga., bring the total number to five.
