In support of the global #GivingTuesday movement, Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion Feeds is helping to provide 500,000 meals to its hunger-relief partner Feeding America and the 33 local member food banks throughout the grocer’s 10-state operating area.

Created in 2012, #GivingTuesday is observed the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage generosity, giving and good deeds.

“At a time when more and more of our neighbors are experiencing food insecurity, we are pleased to be able to support the #GivingTuesday movement,” said Kevin Durkee, manager, Food Lion Feeds.

“Feeding America’s role is vital and goes to the heart of Food Lion’s purpose to feed neighbors in the towns and cities we serve and to help families live healthier and happier lives.”

The foundation was founded in 2014 by Food Lion to address food insecurity in the towns and cities it serves. It has provided nearly 100 million meals in 2022 to end hunger in its communities.

Support is provided through a combination of product, financial and equipment donations, such as disaster relief and recovery efforts, volunteer hours by employees, in-store retail campaigns and the company’s food rescue program, in which every store distributes unsold food that might otherwise go to waste.

Through Food Lion Feeds, the grocer has helped to provide more than 970 million meals to individuals and families since 2014 and has committed to donate 1.5 billion meals by 2025.
