Food Lion Feeds To Renovate 30 Food Pantries In 30 Days

Food Lion Feeds logo summer campaign

In conjunction with Feeding America‘s Hunger Action Month, Food Lion Feeds will remodel and stock the shelves at 30 food pantries across its 10-state footprint during its fourth annual “The Great Pantry Makeover.” Food Lion Feeds is Food Lion’s hunger relief initiative, which has donated more than 400 million meals to neighbors in need since 2014.

“Giving back to our communities is part of who we are at Food Lion and something we care deeply about,” said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. “This year’s Great Pantry Makeover effort is focused on expanding the capacity of these local feeding agencies to distribute fresh, nutritious food so their clients can nourish their families and set them up for success. I know our associates are excited to give back to the communities they call home, and I can’t wait to see the results.”

More than 300 Food Lion associates will volunteer to support their local feeding agencies the September event, which kicked off on Sept. 5 and includes service projects planned throughout the month. During the event, Food Lion associates will donate more than 1,500 volunteer service hours and the equivalent of 1 million meals through food and equipment donations such as painting and cleaning pantries, installing shelving, freezers, coolers and other equipment to expand capacity for fresh fruits, vegetables and other products, as well as stocking shelves with food.
