Food Lion customers have an opportunity to help fight hunger in their community while shopping in-store or online through Food Lion To Go with the purchase of a specially marked orange bag campaign. Additionally, customers can make a cash donation of any amount at the register to support Feeding America and local food banks. In 2020, the Food Lion Feeds Orange Bag campaign helped to provide one million meals to neighbors in need across Food Lion’s 10-state footprint.
For every bag of specially marked Food Lion oranges purchased from March 3 – 23, 2021, Food Lion Feeds will help provide five meals* to the local Feeding America® member food bank.
Feeding America will distribute funds raised to local food banks within Food Lion’s footprint. $0.50, the monetary equivalent of 5 meals*, will be donated to Feeding America from every purchase Food Lion Feeds branded apples with a minimum donation of ($125,000) to Feeding America.
