Food Lion launches Hunger Has a Cure Campaign

SALISBURY, N.C. — Food Lion has launched its Hunger Has a Cure Campaign to support Feeding America's 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 17. Customers may also donate any other amount of their choice.

"As a grocer, we want to help our neighbors who are struggling to feed their families," said Bill Garcia, manager of community relations for Food Lion. "During the summer months, food donations typically drop while hunger needs increase. Funds raised through this two-week campaign will help close the gap and provide critical assistance to families in need."

Customers can support the Hunger Has a Cure Campaign by adding a monetary donation of their choice to their total grocery bill at the register. These funds will then be donated to Feeding America, which is able to help provide eight meals per every $1 donated. All Food Lion stores are participating in the campaign.
