Food Lion believes no one should have to make the tough choice between dinner and rent and no one should go hungry. In 2014, Food Lion committed to ending hunger in the communities they serve through Food Lion Feeds. Since then Food Lion has helped to provide more than 180 million meals toward their 500 million meal goal, volunteered thousands of hours to local food pantries and made a tremendous impact working with their food bank partners to help eliminate hunger in the local community.
On June 7, Food Lion hosted the first annual “The Feedys” awards to honor all of Food Lion’s food bank partners, the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation grant recipients, and store associates that work hard every day to close the gap on hunger. Our own Oya Oliver, FRFB President and CEO accepted the Food Lion “The Feedy’s” award plate in honor of the 23 years Food Lion and the FRFB have been working together to create a hunger-free community.
