The Warm Hearth Foundation has received $1,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to provide food to seniors in need on the Warm Hearth campus. The Foundation will use the gift to purchase shelf-stable groceries for its on-campus food pantry, Micah’s Pantry.
“We are so thankful for the support we have received from Food Lion. This gift will help us keep the shelves stocked in Micah’s Pantry and allow us to continue to serve seniors who rely on us for some of life’s most basic necessities. We could not meet the ongoing needs of our residents without support from organizations like the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation,” said Karen Nelson, Associate Director of Development.
Approximately one-third of the residents who call Warm Hearth Village home are seniors who rely on low, fixed monthly incomes. The Foundation’s programs provide assistance in the form of housing and healthcare and help with basic necessities like food, personal care and household cleaning items and pet supplies.
The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting families facing food insecurity across its 10-state footprint. Established in 2001, the Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding local neighbors in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $15 million in grants.
