Lowes Foods Donation Requests

As a homegrown, locally owned grocer, Lowes Foods is committed to giving back to the communities we serve in North and South Carolina. Below are the causes that Lowes Foods prioritizes for support. 

  • Feeding the Hungry
  • Nutrition
  • Education
  • Scouting

Lowes Foods is unable to fulfill requests for funding individuals, trips, tours or student exchange programs or fund drives conducted for political organizations. 


Requests for Feeding the Hungry

To reach the most people as efficiently as possible, we direct our home office donations through Feeding America. We support two major food drives throughout the year, Friends Feeding Friends in November and December and Bag Childhood Hunger in June. Friends Feeding Friends is the largest Food drive in the Carolinas. All donations stay in the local community. If you are a non-profit and you are interested in donations for a food bank you are starting, please reach out to the Feeding America branch in your area. If you have a non-profit and are inquiring about over-produced items in our fresh department, please contact your store directly.
