Food Lion grocery store representatives unveiled two refrigerator trucks
Tuesday to be given to Harvest Hope Food Bank and Lowcountry Food Bank. The trucks will be used as mobile food pantries serving families in remote locations across South Carolina.

Harvest Hope’s CEO, Wendy Broderick, gratefully acknowledged the grocery chain’s generosity as she addressed the crowd at the Hardscrabble Road location. “Food Lion has been Harvest Hope’s biggest partner over the years, having donated over 22.9 million meals,” she said. “There is no doubt that without Food Lion, Harvest Hope would not be where it is today.”

Meg Ham, president of Food Lion, added: “Food Lion has nourished our neighbors in the greater South Carolina community for 43 years and through Food Lion Feeds, the company has donated more than 500 million meals to individuals and families since 2014.”

Harvest Hope serves 20 out of 46 South Carolina counties, is affiliated with 439 non-profit partners, and served more than two million individuals in the last fiscal year. Visit their website to learn more about volunteering and making a financial donation.
