Food Lion is partnering with its customers to help end hunger by offering specially-marked "Food Lion Feeds" bagged oranges for sale in its stores starting March 6, 2019. In its first year, the bagged orange 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.
With the sale of each bag through March 26, 2019, or while supplies last, Food Lion Feeds will donate five meals* to local food banks in partnership with Feeding America®. The number of meals donated to each food bank will be based on the number of participating bagged oranges sold in each food bank’s service area. The bags will maintain an MVP sale price of $2.99 throughout the campaign.
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 Orange" 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.
