Food Lion Feeds will help provide five meals to Feeding America member food banks located near a Food Lion store for every specially marked bag of gala apples purchased through Oct. 5. The annual campaign aims to help provide 1 million meals to neighbors in need.
Since 2014, customers have helped to provide more than 10 million meals through the sale of the specially marked apples.
“The Food Lion Feeds gala apple campaign is all about neighbors helping neighbors,” said Kevin Durkee, manager of Food Lion Feeds. “The campaign is an easy way for customers to make a big difference in their community. We’re committed to fighting hunger in the towns and cities we serve, and we’re hoping our customers join us to make an even larger impact to nourish more neighbors.”
The bags will maintain a sale price of $2.99 throughout the campaign. The number of meals provided to each food bank will be based on the number of participating bagged apples sold in each food bank’s service area.
Through Food Lion Feeds, the company has made a commitment to help provide 1 billion more meals to individuals and families in need by the end of 2025. For more information on Food Lion Feeds, visit foodlion.com.
