Food Lion Hunger Campaign to Provide 20 Million Meals

Food Lion Feeds’ third annual ‘Summers Without Hunger’ campaign aims to provide 20 million meals to fight child hunger this summer. Through the campaign, neighbors have the opportunity to donate $5 at checkout or online through Food Lion To Go. All donations benefit local Feeding America member food banks across Food Lion’s operating area. All customer donations will be matched by Food Lion suppliers Campbell's, Coca Cola, Frito Lay, Gatorade, General Mills, Kellogg's, Kraft Heinz, Mondelez, Pepsi Beverages and Unilever.

Said Kevin Durkee, Manager, Food Lion Feeds, “In partnership with our customers and suppliers, we’re hoping this is our most impactful ‘Summers Without Hunger’ campaign yet. We’re grateful for this year’s participating supplier partners and our customers for coming together to support this important cause. Our goal with this campaign is to help eliminate some of the difficult choices our neighbors are forced to make while school is out for the summer.”

In addition to customers, suppliers and Food Lion donations, Food Lion associates will also volunteer throughout the month at many of the participating local Feeding America member food banks to help distribute food to neighbors in need.

“For kids who count on school meal programs during the school year, summer break could mean three months of worry and hunger,” said Lauren Biedron, vice president of corporate partnerships at Feeding America. “Feeding America is grateful to Food Lion, suppliers, associates and customers for their continued commitment to provide meals to children and their families through ‘Summers Without Hunger’.”
