With Thanksgiving approaching, we’re starting to really sit back and think about all we have to be grateful for. A roof over our heads, food in our bellies, and awesome clients who really care about their fellow man. After a delivery to a Food Lion in Greensboro, NC, we were really impressed with the work they were doing in the community for the holiday.
Holidays Without Hunger
Specifically, the ‘Holidays Without Hunger’ campaign was of particular interest. Between November 19 and December 13, customers at any of the 1,100 Food Lion locations can purchase and donate a specially marked food box for $5 or give a cash donation at the register. All of the proceeds will go to America’s largest domestic hunger relief charity, Feeding America, and will benefit local food banks.
Food Lion Feeds
Through similar in-store campaigns, Food Lion has already donated 40 million meals this year and has a goal of 500 million by the end of 2020. You can learn more about various community campaigns on the Food Lion website. While there, you can check out all of the all of the area food banks supported by Food Lion Feeds.
We hope this post inspires all who read it to do something worthwhile for their own communities! Happy Thanksgiving from Roll Off Dumpster Direct!
