Thank you for joining us for Food Lion Hunger Relief Day at the State Fair on Thursday, October 24! Food Lion Hunger Relief day is one of the largest one-day canned-food drives in the state, held each year to benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina as well as other Food Banks in the region, such as Fayetteville, Winston-Salem and Elizabeth City.
We are delighted to share that our final results are in... This year fairgoers donated a total of 243,005 pounds of food! That's more than 204,000 meals for local families!
Last year, more than 214,000 pounds were collected on Food Lion Hunger Relief Day. In 2010, more than 247,000 pounds were collected which is the largest amount raised in the history of the event. This is the tenth year that Food Lion has sponsored Hunger Relief Day.
Thank you to Food Lion, the Fair, our donors, and volunteers for your contributions to help those in need in our communities.
