Did you know 1 in 4 children in your community is going without food? With school out, many area children go hungry over the summer...but you can help! During the month of June, Lowes Foods stores are collecting donations to Bag Childhood Hunger. Visit a Lowes Foods today and pick up a ready-made bag of child-friendly foods. Monetary donations will also be accepted. All donations go to your local Second Harvest Food Bank agency. Please help and let's Bag Childhood Hunger together!
Lowes Foods is now a participant in the North Carolina 10% Campaign, pledging to source at least 10% of their purchases from North Carolina. Lowes Foods already exceeds the 10% locally grown goal for fresh fruits and vegetables in their North Carolina stores during the North Carolina growing season. We are striving to sell even more this year. Lowes Foods is seeking North Carolina products across many categories including seafood and packaged products, and we are actively working with farmers to teach them the best way to get their products through the distribution system of a large grocery chain. Lowes Foods will be offering The Carolina Crate program this summer which is a convenient way for geusts to purchase a box of locally grown produce each week.
Lowes Foods is proud to be a responsible and caring member of the communities in which we do business. We have a strong commitment to make them better places in which to live and work. One way we achieve that is by encouraging our employees to become involved in a wide range of community activities in the cities and towns where they work. We also support non-profit groups through donations. The charitable efforts of Lowes Foods are focused on areas that are closely related to our mission, such as eliminating hunger, promoting good nutrition and educating children.
During the months of November and December we hold the Friends Feeding Friends food drive to support Feeding America (formally known as Second Harvest Food Banks) and their member agencies in North Carolina, South Carolina & Virginia.
We participate in many other fundraising events throughout the year. We support hundreds of organizations through our Lowe's Foods Gift Card Fundraising Program called Club Cash.
