Nourish Your Family While Helping Your Neighbors in Need
Beginning this week, Food Lion is partnering with its customers to help end hunger by offering specially-marked Food Lion Feeds bagged gala apples for sale in its stores. In its sixth year, the bagged apple campaign will help nourish families and 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 from September 11th through October 2nd, 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 apples sold in each food bank’s service area. The bags will maintain an MVP sale price of $2.99 throughout the campaign.
This is a great way to nourish your family while at the same time helping to end hunger in your community, so make sure to pick up a bag on your next shopping trip!

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. Through the apple bag campaign, $0.50 (monetary equivalent of 5 meals) from each bag purchase will be donated to Feeding America member food banks. Food Lion guarantees a minimum donation of $100,000 (monetary equivalent of 1 million meals.). For more information, visit www.foodlion.com/feeds.
