Sunnyside Ministry, 319 Haled St, has received $2,500 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation just in time to help feed local residents. Sunnyside Ministry will use this funding to operate their food pantry, which has filled more than 5,500 food orders for over 16,000 people in 2015.

“This gift will help us feed those in our community that are in need of nutritious meals,” said David Holston, Sunnyside Ministry director. “When people are truly hungry, they lack the energy to do many of the daily activities most of us take for granted. They lack the ability to work and do a job well, or go to school and study diligently. This gift will bring hope and health to many in our community, and we thank Food Lion for this donation and for all they do to help alleviate hunger in our community.”

Since 1978, Sunnyside Ministry has worked to help those who are hungry in its community. Sunnyside Ministry will use these funds to pay agency expenses, purchase food and provide essential items for the clients it serves. This gift will help Sunnyside Ministry operate its food pantry in 2016.

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 $9 million in grants.
