One local nonprofit received some good news on Monday, as FACES Food Pantry received some help from Food Lion. The national grocery chain donated $2,000 through its charitable foundation, to help cover the cost of food and other supplies. 

Food Lion’s Feeding the Hungry grant will go to help FACES provide support to more than 2,000 residents this year. In addition, the grants support community feeding partners by helping neighbors increase their access to nutritious food and provide nutrition education to eliminate health risks for those experiencing food insecurity.
