Food Lion's bagged apples campaign provides meals to those in need

Food Lion is doing its part to help the community.

The Salisbury, N.C.-based retailer is partnering with customers to help do its part to help end hunger. To do this, the company is launching specially-marked Food Lion Feeds bagged apples, and through its sales donate meals to local food banks in partnership with Feeding America.

Each of the bags will maintain a retail price of $2.99 throughout the campaign, which is set to begin on Oct. 2.

This marks the fifth year the bagged apple campaign will help provide more than one million meals to families facing hunger in local communities across its 10-state footprint, the company said.

Through its Food Lion Feeds initiative, the company has made a commitment to provide 500 million meals to individuals and families in need by the end of 2020.

Since the program’s inception in 2014, the retailer has donated more than 402 million meals through in-store campaigns, in-store food rescue programs and associate volunteerism.
