Food Lion Charitable Foundation And Western Union Foundation Donate $200,000 To Help Alleviate Child Hunger And Promote Academic Enrichment

Nine food banks to receive critical funding for programs to provide children with nutritious food

CHICAGO, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Feeding America announced today that the Food Lion Charitable Foundation and the Western Union Foundation have again joined forces to support programs that enrich the lives of children by donating a total of $200,000 to Feeding America and nine of its member food banks.

The Food Lion Charitable Foundation's contribution is in support of addressing child hunger, while the educational component is funded by the Western Union Foundation. The grant focuses on students in the communities that Food Lion and Western Union serve.

Food Lion Charitable Foundation President Kyle Price and Western Union Senior Vice President Carter Hunt presented checks to representatives from the respective food banks during a special presentation on October 12 at the Food Lion corporate offices in Salisbury, N.C.

"Food Lion has a long-standing partnership with Feeding America in an effort to fight hunger," said Price. "The Food Lion Charitable Foundation provides hundreds of grants each year to support important hunger-relief programs at agencies across our operating markets. We hope this contribution will help further the Feeding America mission and help these food banks to continue to make a difference in the fight to end child hunger."

Although food insecurity is harmful to any individual, it can be particularly devastating among children due to their increased vulnerability and the potential for long-term consequences.  According to research, children growing up in food-insecure families are vulnerable to poor health and stunted development from the earliest stages of life.

The nine food banks in the Feeding America network that are recipients of the donation employ a variety of innovative approaches to provide nutritious food and nutrition education to children and adults in the communities.
