Four Cans = Free Admission on October 18!

Join us next Thursday at the North Carolina State Fair and help provide food to families and individuals in need in our communities.

October 18 is Food Lion Hunger Relief Day at the North Carolina State Fair! Bring four cans (or more!) of Food Lion brand food in exchange for free admission.

This year, fairgoers have extra incentive to visit the fair on Food Lion Hunger Relief Day: a Challenge issued by Commissioner Troxler:

If fairgoers break the record of 247,569 pounds of canned food set in 2010, the fair will donate $1,000 to the food bank. If collections top 275,000 pounds, the fair will kick in $2,500. And if collections reach 300,000 pounds, the fair will donate $5,000 to the Food Bank.

Additionally, fairgoers will have a chance to meet a Food Bank Social Media Ambassador! From 12 pm to 8 pm at Gate 8, seek out our Ambassador (who will be on Twitter using hashtag #HungerReliefDay) for a chance to win a State Fair Prize Pack.

Help us break a new record this year while having a "Bumper Crop of Fun" at the North Carolina State Fair!  Join us on Thursday, October 18 for Food Lion Hunger Relief Day...
