Food Lion Feeds’ Sack To Give Back Program Returns This Season

sack to give

Food Lion Feeds’ Sack to Give Back program is returning to the gridiron this fall to help feed more food-insecure neighbors. Through the effort to fight hunger, the retailer is partnering with 27 colleges and universities and will donate 1,000 meals (up to 30,000 meals per school) for every quarterback sack made by the participating institution.

The meals will be donated to the local Feeding America member food bank near each school. Food Lion Feeds has donated 574,000 meals through the previous three seasons of the campaign.

“At Food Lion, we’re as passionate about ending hunger as our neighbors are about their favorite team,” said Kevin Durkee, manager of Food Lion Feeds. “Neighbors may be on opposite sides of the field on Saturday, but ending hunger is a cause we can all support. We’re excited about giving college football fans one more reason to cheer this fall. We wish all the participating schools a successful season both on the field and on the Sack to Give Back scoreboard.”

The participating colleges and food bank which will benefit from each school’s efforts are as follows:
