Heritage Cares Food Pantry receives gift from Food Lion

Heritage Cares Food Pantry has received $2,700 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help feed local residents during this coming year. Heritage Cares Food Pantry will use this gift to purchase food from Feeding America Southwest Virginia and other sources.

“We rely on gifts and grants from outside sources to help feed those in need in our area. This grant will enable us to accomplish this goal. We are very appreciative to the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation for their most generous gifts. Together, we can make a difference,” said Director of Heritage Cares Food Pantry, Harriet Berry.

Heritage Cares is a non-profit organization that operates as a ministry of Heritage Church in Dublin. The organization operates an on-site food pantry which distributes food to those in need within our community and surrounding areas, without reservation. Heritage Cares, operated by volunteers, is supported by its local church financially and voluntarily. However, due to the continually growing need in our area, it is beyond its financial means to sustain the ministry without assistance from outside organizations.

Established in 2001. The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $10 million in grants.
