Food Lion Supports Families Together Pantry
Families Together has received $2,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation just in time to help feed local residents. The gift will be used for its emergency pantry, meals for workshops, food for family events, and snacks/meals for children’s enrichment.
“We are extremely grateful for this support from Food Lion,” said Lisa Rowe, Families Together Executive Director. “In our work to help families experiencing homelessness return to permanent homes, it is vital for us to be able to provide relief through our emergency food pantry when they are in need of food. In addition, we hold empowerment workshops, family events, and children’s enrichment programs and this gift will enable us to provide healthy food in a variety of circumstances.”
Established in 2001, the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $9 million in grants. Through Food Lion Feeds, Food Lion is working to create a better tomorrow by uniting with customers and partners to eliminate the choices families are forced to make when they are hungry. By the end of 2020, the company has pledged to provide 500 million meals to families in need in its local communities. For more information, visit foodlion.com/feeds.
