Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion Feeds has sent two semi-trailers full of essentials from South Carolina to Florida, supporting residents recovering from Hurricane Ian.

The delivery will benefit Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, the largest hunger-relief network in Southwest Florida, which serves the communities most impacted by Hurricane Ian. The delivery includes pallets of water, canned soup, canned vegetables, rice, dried beans, macaroni and cheese, antibacterial wipes, baby food and pet food.

“It’s important to support our neighbors in times of need, and we are committed to helping Floridians who are experiencing unprecedented times due to the devastation from Hurricane Ian,” said Kevin Durkee, manager, Food Lion Feeds. “By providing truckloads of food and supplies, we want the families impacted to know we care and are here to help.”

In addition to the product delivery, the retailer raised funds in partnership with customers to support the American Red Cross’ efforts to provide meals and assistance to residents affected by the devastation. Through Oct. 18, customers at its more than 1,100 stores across 10 states were able to make a cash donation at the register to support those in the path of Hurricane Ian.

All proceeds benefit American Red Cross relief efforts, and Food Lion will match register donations up to $30,000. Results of those contributions will be announced later this month. So far in 2022, Food Lion Feeds has provided $100,000 in donations to the American Red Cross to support recovery efforts from flooding in Eastern Kentucky.

The company has more than 82,000 employees across 1,100 stores throughout 10 Southeastern and mid-Atlantic states.

Food Lion is the only company in the country to be named an “Energy Star Partner of the Year” for 21 consecutive years. It also established a food rescue program to support food-insecure people.

Through Food Lion Feeds, the retailer has donated more than 970 million meals to individuals and families since 2014 and has committed to donate 1.5 billion meals by 2025. Since 1957, Food Lion is a company of Ahold Delhaize USA, the U.S. division of Zaandam-based Ahold Delhaize.
