We believe no one should have to choose between dinner and paying rent or gasoline and buying groceries.
Food Lion understands many people in the communities it serves struggle with hunger every day. That’s why, in 2014, Food Lion Feeds was created. Through Food Lion Feeds, Food Lion is working to create a better tomorrow by uniting with customers and partners to eliminate the choices families are forced to make when they are hungry.
By 2020 Food Lion Feeds will donate 500 million meals to help end hunger.
FACES OF HUNGER
Food Lion is about food. That’s why we are so passionate about helping to solve hunger today, while investing in and honoring those who work toward ending hunger tomorrow. Together with our customers, associates and partners, we can create a better tomorrow by uniting to eliminate the choices families are forced to make when they are hungry.
One in 12 seniors face hunger. At Food Lion, we believe everyone, especially seniors, should have access to affordable food, whether or not they can leave their homes to get it.
One in six people face hunger, and too often parents are faced with tough choices when feeding their families. At Food Lion, we believe no one should have to choose between food and fuel, or formula and diapers.
More than one in five children face hunger. At Food Lion, we believe that no one, especially children, should face an empty plate.
Food Lion Feeds is committed to feeding those affected by natural disasters and other crisis.
Each night, 130,000 veterans are homeless and hungry. At Food Lion, we believe that no one, especially those who have served our country so selflessly, should have to battle hunger.
For us at Food Lion, relieving hunger is not just about eliminating the choices people make when they give up food, but helping them make the right ones too.
