In coordination with Teacher Appreciation Week, Food Lion surprised and delighted over 300 Salisbury-Rowan County school teachers today with free lunches as another Random Acts of Freshness activity tied to its new "How Refreshing" campaign. As a way to say thanks, teachers at four lucky district schools were the recipients of fresh sandwiches or salads along with crisp fruit and a refreshing beverage.
The first stop on the tour was E. Hanford Dole Elementary School on Choate Rd., where 70 teachers received Food Lion reusable lunch bags filled with freshness, and also picked up a huge THANK YOU from Food Lion for their commitment to the community.
The #FoodLionFresh Fresh-Creational Vehicle then rolled on to Isenberg Elementary School on Jake Alexander Blvd. to brighten the Monday for 70 educators.
Next, at Southeast Middle School on Peeler Rd., 75 teachers could keep their lunches packed at home in the school fridge, because Food Lion rang today's lunch bell in their office conference room.
Finally, 90 teachers at Jesse Carson High School picked up their bags of freshness before heading back to the afternoon's classes with some of Rowan counties finest.
Food Lion has been a proud partner of the Salisbury community since its founding nearly 60 years ago, and today's efforts were a way to give back to the educators influencing so many of the community's youth.
We thank them for their tireless efforts, and hope today's surprise lunch giveaway provides a refreshing start to their week!
Stay tuned for Food Lion's next Random Act of Freshness. You never know where you'll find us next!
