Thank you for joining us for Food Lion Hunger Relief Day at the State Fair on Thursday, October 23! 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 prelimnary numbers are in... so far, we have tallied 200,403 pounds of food which equals nearly 169,000 meals! See the official press release »
Final sweeps of the gates at the NC State Fair will be made early next week at which time a grand total for 2014 Food Lion Hunger Relief Day will be announced.
Last year, more than 243,000 pounds were collected on Food Lion Hunger Relief Day. This is the eleventh year that Food Lion has sponsored Hunger Relief Day.
