Mooresville, North Carolina's Cascade Community Gardens became a little fresher recently thanks to Food Lion's donation of nearly 30 fresh plants.
Included as part of the donation were peach and two varieties of apple trees, as well as blueberry bushes. Once harvested, the fruit will be used in Mooresville community events and also used to feed the food-insecure at the Mooresville Soup Kitchen, which serves lunch to around 200 area residents in need.
"We are thankful Food Lion selected the Mooresville Community Garden as the location to benefit from the tree planting," said Daniel Stines, Parks and Recreation Manager for the town of Mooresville. "We will be eagerly waiting for our trees to produce fruits for our community to enjoy."
The recent donation is another Random Acts of Freshness from Food Lion's new advertising campaign, "How Refreshing." Through the campaign, the grocer has surprised and delighted many of the communities in the areas Food Lion serves.
Just in the last few days as part of the campaign, Food Lion has surprised 300 Salisbury, N.C. teachers with free lunch to say THANKS for their tireless efforts educating area youth, and provided refreshing smoothies and other treats to UNCC students in great need of a study break during finals week.
Where will the next Random Act of Freshness be?
