You’ve heard of Food Lion (we hope!), but have you heard of the Food Lion Feeds program? This charitable giving effort started in 2014 and we’re thrilled to say that Common Heart has benefited from several sponsorship donations for recent fundraising events, including last month’s Love in Action Banquet.
“Our mantra is that people should not have to choose between rent or groceries or paying medical bills and nourishing their family,” Angela Wheeler from Food Lion Feeds said. “It’s who we are. It’s what we’re passionate about.”
The program has 30 food bank partners in 10 states and Wheeler said they’re proud to partner with Common Heart. Our food pantries benefit from their generosity year-round with weekly food pickups at local stores and a special holiday program that sends lots of nonperishables our way. Food Lion employees can often be found out and about volunteering in our community!
“Common Heart’s mission aligns with what we’re trying to do to help local towns and cities to provide them with those basic needs like food,” Wheeler said. “Learning more about Common Heart has been an eye opener for me and we love to know how many meals each donation is providing. It was a no brainer to support you guys.”
Thank you Food Lion & Food Lion Feeds!!!
