Food Lion Feeds Communities Through ‘Score To Give More’ Program

Food Lion Feeds Score To Give More

Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion Feeds is teaming up with 54 colleges and universities, including 16 women’s teams, to help feed those in need through its “Score To Give More” campaign. For each free throw made by participating schools, Food Lion Feeds will donate 100 meals to the school’s local food bank or pantry, up to 30,000 meals per school.

In 2023, Food Lion Feeds’ Score to Give More program has expanded from 33 to 54 men’s and women’s teams across Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The program will benefit 19 Feeding America local partner food banks serving communities where each school is located.

Since 2019, Food Lion Feeds has donated more than 3.2 million meals through the combination of regular season and tournament free throws made by players.

“By expanding our partnership to include women’s basketball programs, we are able to increase awareness about food insecurity in our communities through Food Lions Feeds’ Score to Give More program,” said Kevin Durkee, manager, Food Lion Feeds.

“Taking advantage of every free throw made, we engage college students in the fight against hunger. In addition to nourishing our neighbors, we look forward to an exciting collegiate basketball season through these partnerships.”

The “Score to Give More” campaign is one of the efforts Food Lion Feeds leads in partnership with college campuses. In addition to this collegiate effort, Food Lion Feeds also teams up with universities for its Sack to Give Back campaign, providing 1,000 meals (up to 30,000 meals per school) for every quarterback sack made by the participating institution.
