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

The Feeding America food banks grant recipients are: Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina ( Raleigh, NC), Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia ( Norfolk, VA), Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina ( Winston-Salem, NC ), Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula ( Hampton, VA), Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina ( Charlotte, N.C ), FeedMore, Inc. (dba Central Virginia Food Bank), ( Richmond, Va), Capital Area Food Bank ( Washington, D.C), Lowcountry Food Bank ( North Charleston, SC) and Harvest Hope Food Bank ( Greenville, SC).

Specifically, the grant donations will support Feeding America's Kids Cafe programs at each of the food banks. For example, the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina has 42 Kids Cafe sites in 12 different counties in North Carolina and South Carolina. 

"With 170,000 children living in poverty in the Metrolina Region, the support of Food Lion and Western Union is so important in ensuring we meet our number one goal of ending child hunger in our 19 county service region of North and South Carolina," said Kay Carter, Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. "We are very grateful that these amazing companies share our concern for making sure every child has healthy nutritious meals and snacks through the Kids Cafe Program."

Established in 2001, the Food Lion Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves.

"It's hard to imagine that in the land of plenty there are nearly 17 million children at risk of going hungry," said Matt Knott, interim President and CEO of Feeding America, the nation's leading anti-hunger organization. "We are so grateful to have generous partners like the Food Lion Charitable Foundation and the Western Union Foundation for helping us make sure that every child have enough to eat."

Luella Chavez D'Angelo, Senior Vice President, Western Union Social Ventures, and President, Western Union Foundation, said, "The Western Union Foundation is proud to support the educational programs of Feeding America. Education is one of the surest paths to financial opportunity, and uniquely empowers people to make a lasting difference in the world."
