Salisbury, N.C. — Food Lion announced the results of its two-week Hunger Has a Cure campaign.
The campaign, which ran April 4 to April 17, raised more than $500,000, which will support Feeding America's network of local food banks. Feeding America will use the funds to provide 3.7 million meals to those in need. As part of the campaign, customers were given the opportunity to donate $1, $3 or any other amount of their choice at checkout.
"We are ecstatic about the more than 3.7 million meals that we were able to provide to families in need," said Bill Garcia, manager of community relations for Food Lion. "We are proud to work with Feeding America to help eliminate hunger in our communities."
