Solicitation Policy 

Food Lion's philanthropic focus is ending hunger in the towns and cities we serve through Food Lion Feeds, our hunger-relief initiative. Our vision is a world where no one is hungry or must choose between dinner and rent and where communities pull together to help families thrive.

We have donated 500 million meals to children, families, seniors and members of military and have set a goal to work together with our neighbors to donate 1 billion more meals by 2025.

Food Lion appreciates you reaching out to us regarding your request for our support. We value the contributions of the many volunteer and community groups and organizations that raise funds for important causes in the towns and cities we serve. To that end, we may allow 501(c)3 charitable organizations who are fundraising for local causes to solicit outside of our stores on Saturdays, up to two times per calendar year, when Food Lion is not running an in-store charitable campaign.*

Please note that we continue to implement guidance from local, state and national health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). As we continue to implement those guidelines, all solicitations remain suspended at our stores. We will continue to reevaluate this policy and will post updated solicitation dates for 2021 on our website once we have made a determination that it is safe to proceed. We appreciate your understanding as we take every possible step to respect the safety of our customers and associates.

We look forward to welcoming back our communities’ charitable organizations in the near future.*
