Food Lion

To help the community recover from a massive power outage in Moore County, North Carolina, Food Lion is donating $30,000 in gift cards to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

The cards will be distributed through the food bank’s partner agencies located in Moore County. The six Food Lion stores in the area also hosted free water distributions this week.

“Caring for our neighbors is core to everything we do at Food Lion,” said Meg Ham, president, Food Lion. “We know it’s a stressful time, and we hope this donation will help provide comfort and critical resources at a time when our neighbors really need it.”

The gift cards will be distributed in $20 increments at the following food bank agencies in Moore County: West End UMC, Pinebluff UMC, Carthage UMC, Vass Community Food Pantry, Blue Angel Outreach and Southern Pines UMC.

“The donation of gift cards to our partner agencies will be very beneficial as our community begins to restock its food supply after this horrific attack on the Moore County power system,” said Michael Cotten, Sandhills branch director, Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

“Many of our agencies and community partners have lost everything in their refrigerators and freezers, and this very generous donation will be a significant impact to them getting back on their feet.”

Food Lion is an omnichannel retailer with more than 82,000 employees across 1,100 stores throughout 10 Southeastern and mid-Atlantic states. Food Lion has been named an Energy Star Partner of the Year for 21 consecutive years.

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. The grocer is a company of Ahold Delhaize USA, the U.S. division of Zaandam-based Ahold Delhaize.
