Food Lion launches ‘Hunger Has a Cure’
SALISBURY — Food Lion launches its “Hunger Has a Cure” campaign to support Feeding America and its network of local food banks. The two-week campaign, which allows customers to donate in $1 or $3 increments at the register, runs through April 16.
“We know that it’s difficult for some families to provide food during the summer, especially since it’s a time when food donations typically drop while hunger needs increase,” said Sherrii Webb, manager of community relations for Food Lion. “Funds raised through this two-week ‘Hunger Has a Cure’ campaign will provide critical food assistance for local families in need.”
Funds will then be donated to Feeding America, which is able to help provide eight meals per every $1 donated.
Last year, Food Lion’s “Hunger Has a Cure” campaign donated more than $650,000 and 1.1 million pounds of food.
