After completing more than 19 pantry makeovers during the first half of September, Hunger Action Month, many are wondering "where will The Great Pantry Makeover go next?"
On Monday, September 21, with big smiles and lots of energy, The Great Pantry Makeover crew stopped in Savannah, Ga., where Food Lion associates transformed The Salvation Army by painting and fixing shelves, donating new freezers and tables and stocking the pantry with food.
As the home of Kid's Café and a safe haven for many, The Salvation Army plays an important role in their community. In fact, the organization celebrated 125 years of "Doing the Most Good in Georgia" in 2015 through their commitment to provide food, help and hope to their community.
"The Salvation Army and Second Harvest are so appreciative of everything Food Lion is doing," said Mary Jane Crouch, director of America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. "Food Lion is one of our biggest partners in making sure hungry people get the food they need."
America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia nominated the Salvation Army for the makeover, because the impact of this organization is great – especially in the lives of children. To make their impact even greater, Food Lion Feeds donated $3,000 which provided new freezers, a dehumidifier, new paint and food to restock the pantry.
Food Lion Feeds is proud to partner with organizations like The Salvation Army and America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and work together to close the gap on hunger and make sure no child goes to bed hungry.
