May. 22, 2012
RICHMOND, VA. — Food Lion is donating $10,000 of its store-brand food products to Central Virginia Food Bank at 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 23 to feed 450 area needy families through the food bank’s Mobile Food Pantry at Moore Street Baptist Church located at 1408 W. Leigh St.
“Food Lion is a strong community partner and is dedicated to assisting hunger relief and nutrition education programs in the communities we serve,” said Bill Garcia, Community Relations Manager for Food Lion. “Participating in the food distribution event in Richmond, Va., is another great opportunity for us to give back to our customers.”
“We are immensely grateful for this contribution from Food Lion, as it couldn’t come at a more opportune time,” said Fay Lohr, CEO of FeedMore, the umbrella organization of the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels. “As we transition to the summer season, food and financial donations can decline. Local grocery partners like Food Lion make a huge difference in meeting the needs of our 400+ regional feeding partners all year long. We’re so thankful for their ongoing support to hunger relief in our region.”
FeedMore is the umbrella organization that brings together the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia. By working together to efficiently and effectively fight hunger to enhance lives in our community, the FeedMore organizations provide hunger relief to our region’s most vulnerable populations, particularly children, families, and seniors.
