Food Lion Donates 5.4 Million Meals to Families in Need

December 29, 2022

Food Lion and its customers helped provide 5.4 million meals to families in need through the supermarket’s annual Holidays Without Hunger campaign.

The campaign is part of the Food Lion Feeds initiative, which benefits hunger-relief organization Feeding America through 33 local Feeding America member food banks as well as hundreds of partner feeding agencies within Food Lion’s 10-state operating area.

During the Holidays Without Hunger campaign, which ran from Nov. 9 through Dec. 24, 2022, customers purchased a specially marked, prepacked Holidays Without Hunger food box for $6 or made a cash donation at checkout. Purchased boxes were delivered directly to local Feeding America food banks or a partner feeding agency in the store’s community, and 100% of all cash donations went directly to Feeding America.
