Food Lion is partnering with its customers to help end hunger by offering specially-marked "Food Lion Feeds" branded apple bag for sale in its stores starting September 11, 2019. With the sale of each bag through October 1, 2019, or while supplies last, Food Lion Feeds will donate five meals* to local food banks in partnership with Feeding America®. The bagged apple campaign will help nourish families and their neighbors in need by helping provide more than 1 million meals* to end hunger in local communities across Food Lion’s 10-state footprint.
Through Food Lion Feeds, Food Lion is working to create a better tomorrow by uniting with customers and partners to help eliminate the difficult choices many families are forced to make when they are struggling with hunger. Working toward its commitment to provide 500 million meals by the end of 2020, Food Lion Feeds offers several in-store campaigns like the "Bagged Apple" campaign, partners with local feeding agencies to donate food everyday through its food rescue program as well as distributes local food and financial donations to local feeding agencies across its 10-state footprint.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
