By leveraging its longstanding heritage of low prices and convenient locations, Food Lion is working to own the easiest full shop grocery experience in the Southeast, anchored by a strong commitment to affordability, freshness and the communities it serves. Through Food Lion Feeds, the company has committed to provide 500 million meals to individuals and families in need by the end of 2020. Food Lion is a company of Delhaize America, the U.S. division of Brussels-based Delhaize Group.
In 2015, Food Lion Feeds partnered with some of its youngest fans to provide more than 1 million meals to families in need through the sale of a special Food Lion Feeds reusable bags sold in its stores. The grocer is now inviting kids ages 5-14 to participate in its Food Lion Feeds “Summers Without Hunger” Design-a-Reusable-Bag Contest. The winning design will be featured on next year’s Food Lion Feeds reusable bag, which will be sold in more than 1,100 stores in June 2016. The campaign is anticipated to help provide another 1 million meals to families and children in need.
Food Lion Feeds
During the summer months, Food Lion realizes some students go hungry because the only nutritious meal they receive is at school. To participate in the contest, kids are asked to draw how they would help feed someone who is hungry in their drawings, kids can show how everyone in the community can help – from family members, friends, their heroes, their school or other organization – or even the Food Lion lion! In addition to having his or her drawing featured on the 2016 reusable bag, the grand prize winner will also receive an iPad Mini2 and a $1,000 donation to a food bank in his or her name. Up to four runners-up will all receive an iPad Mini and a $1,000 donation to a food bank in their names.
