Investment in the Charlotte CommunityFood Lion's investment is also extended to the local community. The grocer has committed $1.5 million to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina's warehouse expansion. Through this new facility, Second Harvest will provide the food bank with new capacity to broaden its already robust work to end hunger in the 16-county region it supports in the greater Charlotte area. The expansion will also offer access to healthier, fresher food so those in need can nourish their families and meet basic needs to help them get back on their feet. "As we announce a significant commitment to remodel our 142 stores to better serve our customers, we are proud to be able to also help Second Harvest better serve the Charlotte community," said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. "Through the new Food Lion Feeds center, we are making a significant and long-term commitment to helping the food bank expand its capabilities to offer fresher, healthier food to those in our community who are struggling with hunger." "Second Harvest and Food Lion have served the Charlotte community together for more than 25 years, and I'm thrilled our strong partnership will continue through the opening of the Food Lion Feeds Center, said Kay Carter, chief executive officer of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. "Food Lion's associates are truly dedicated to making sure those who are hungry don't have to make tough choices, whether it's providing a fresh, healthy meal on the table or groceries in the pantry."
