Food Lion Hunger Relief Day at the State Fair


Thank you for joining us for Food Lion Hunger Relief Day at the North Carolina State Fair
on Thursday, October 22!

We are pleased to share that over 223,000 pounds of food was donated, the equivalent of 188,000 meals to individual in need in our communities.

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.

On behalf of the 800 partner agencies and over 650,000 people who are food insecure in our service area, we thank the NC State Fairgoers, Food Lion, the State Fair Staff and our incredible volunteers!
