Food Lion Feeds launches effort to provide 1 million meals

food lion feedsFood Lion is partnering with its customers to help solve hunger by launching specially marked Food Lion Feeds bagged apples for sale in its stores this week. The effort will help provide 1 million meals to feed families facing hunger in local communities across the grocer’s 10-state footprint.

With the sale of each bag through Oct. 7, or while supplies last, Food Lion will donate five meals to local food banks, in partnership with Feeding America®. The bags will maintain an MVP Sale price of $2.99 throughout the campaign, just in time for parents to pick up healthy snacks for children back in school. Customers can view this and other promotions in Food Lion’s newly re-launched Weekly Flyer at www.foodlion.com/weeklyspecials.

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. The specially marked bagged apples are the second of three in-store Food Lion Feeds campaigns in 2014. Through the sale of special Food Lion Feeds reusable bags made available earlier this year, Food Lion will provide 1 million meals to local food banks in partnership with its customers. The specially marked apples are anticipated to provide an additional 1 million meals*.

The in-store campaigns support Food Lion’s work toward its goal of providing 500 million meals to families in need in its local communities by the end of 2020. *For more information, visit www.foodlion.com/feeds.
