Beginning Wednesday, June 6, Food Lion will partner with customers in its local communities to help fight summer hunger through its Food Lion Feeds Reusable Bag campaign.
To kick off the campaign, Food Lion is honoring both 9-year-old Isabelle G. of Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, and 12-year-old Reyli R. of Kannapolis, North Carolina, who were both recently named honorable mentions in the grocer’s “Summers Without Hunger” Design-a-Reusable-Bag Contest. As part of their winnings, Isabelle and Reyli received a bag signing party at their local Food Lion stores on June 2. Food Lion Feeds also will present the stores’ local feeding agency partners a check in honor of the winners.
During the summer months, Food Lion Feeds realizes many students go hungry because they lack the only nutritious meal they typically receive during school. Isabelle’s design highlights how she would help feed someone who is hungry in her community.
The Summers Without Hunger campaign is anticipated to help provide more than 1 million meals to families and children in need across Food Lion’s store footprint.
