10 percent discount at Food Lion Tuesday for military personnel and veterans
In honor of Veterans Day, Tuesday, Food Lion stores will offer a 10 percent discount to active, retired and honorably discharged military personnel to show their support and appreciation for those who are serving or have served in the United States Armed Forces.
“Food Lion proudly supports the men and women who are serving our country and who protect our freedoms every day,” said Greg Finchum, senior vice president of Retail Operations at Food Lion. “Providing this discount to military and their families is a way for us to honor them and show our gratitude for the many sacrifices they have made for our country.”
To receive the discount, active military, veterans and their families should present their MVP card at checkout and request the discount. Customers will then receive 10 percent off their entire grocery bill only for Tuesday, Nov. 11.
Food Lion is a longstanding supporter of its military associates and customers. The company provides numerous employment benefits to military associates, adopts families of colleagues who have been called into active duty and helps feed veterans through our Food Lion Feeds hunger relief platform.
Earlier this year, Food Lion Feeds partnered with the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore to provide more than 18,000 meals to veterans and their families in need in the great Norfolk area. Associates also volunteered time at several community military events. Additionally, in 2010, Food Lion was honored with the Department of Defense’s highest honor for employers, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves Freedom Award, for its programs and services for military associates.
