When times of crisis are upon us, it is the duty of everyone in the community to help those affected and those in need. As a proud partner of the community we serve, Food Lion takes this responsibility very seriously, and we are committed to help. Food Lion is a part of the communities it serves and as such, we are also affected when tragedy strikes.
Food Lion volunteers have organized Water Rescue distributions to areas affected in the wake of the floods that have left many parts of West Virginia in a state of emergency.
In addition, as of June 27, Food Lion has donated nearly 3,000 gallons of clean drinking water and more than 75 cases of cleaning supplies to organizations such as the American Red Cross and local area food banks.
Thus far, the floods have left more than 30,000 people without power, according to the state's Department of Homeland Security and Energy Management. The donations come at a time where many West Virginians have been left without access to clean drinking water and will not have access to it for at least two weeks.
Food Lion Feeds is committed to the community beyond our goal of serving 500 million meals by the end of 2020. It is through the support of our community every day which allows us to give back in times of need.
