Food Lion launches Holidays Without Hunger campaign

This holiday season, Food Lion is partnering with customers in its more than 1,100 stores, Nov. 18 through Dec. 22, to help solve hunger through its Food Lion Feeds “Holidays Without Hunger” campaign.

Through the campaign, customers can purchase and donate a specially-marked “Holidays Without Hunger” food box for $5, while supplies last, or make a cash donation at checkout. One hundred percent of cash donations benefit the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, the largest domestic hunger-relief charity. Food boxes are donated directly to a local hunger-relief food bank or agency.

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 has already donated approximately 114 million meals* through in-store campaigns, like “Holidays Without Hunger,” its food donation program and local donations and volunteerism.

Based in Salisbury since 1957, Food Lion has more than 1,100 stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states and employs more than 66,000 associates. For more information, visit www.foodlion.com.
