The Army’s Army and Food Lion have entered into a partnership to better support local and relocating military families. The partnership agreement provides for an increase in exposure for both organizations through cross-promotion and a presence at community events and activities. With the addition of Food Lion as a partner, the Army’s Army will continue to seek additional partnerships with community organizations interested in supporting its mission.
Food Lion, based in Salisbury, N.C., operates nearly 1,200 supermarkets in 11 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states. These stores meet local customer needs and preferences for the freshest and best quality products at everyday low prices and offer more than 28,000 different products in each store, including approximately 2,900 private-label products.
Food Lion has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. They are committed to creating an environment where people who work there and people who shop at Food Lion stores are treated fairly and with respect. The company seeks to create an inclusive business environment for customers and employees alike and to offer consumers the quality products they want at great prices.
“Food Lion remains dedicated to supporting those who are called to duty,” said Mike Hall, Food Lion’s director of operations for the Fayetteville market. “We continually strive to be good neighbors and are committed to honoring our Armed Forces while giving back to those who serve. We are thankful for the sacrifices made by those who serve to protect the freedoms we enjoy everyday as Americans.”
“The Army’s Army is pleased to add such a community staple to our family of partners,” said John Meroski, chairman of the Army’s Army. “Food Lion is a shining example of a large organization that truly cares about the communities it serves. We are honored to be associated with them.”
