Being a leading corporate citizen requires commitment to the community. Realizing this, Food Lion sought a way to strengthen and enrich the lives of people in the communities Food Lion serves. The Food Lion Charitable Foundation was established in 2001 as part of a charitable giving program to give financial support to feed the hungry through Feeding America agencies in their 11-state operating area.
Preference for funding is given to organizations or programs that involve Food Lion associates and are located in Food Lion's marketing territory. The Foundation considers requests from organizations that feed the hungry.
Contributions are considered for public charities with 501(c)(3) designations who:
- have an active and responsible board of trustees;
- exhibit ethical publicity methods and solicitation of funds;
- provide for an appropriate audit to reveal income and disbursements in reasonable detail
- can demonstrate long-term financial viability
