300 seniors receive meals in Myrtle Beach area

SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Three hundred needy seniors in the Myrtle Beach area received meals Thursday.

The meals were provided by Food Lion's Week of Giving. Over the course of five days, 1 million meals will be donated, as part of the Food Lion Feeds hunger relief initiative.

The Week of Giving takes Food Lion leadership to 5 cities across their markets, including a stop in the Myrtle Beach area.

"In difficult times, many people have to decide whether to pay rent, buy groceries, or purchase gasoline to get to work because they simply cannot do all three. At Food Lion, we believe no one should choose between dinner and paying rent or gasoline and buying groceries. That's why we are so passionate about our renewed focus on ending hunger and working to make the lines shorter at local feeding agencies," said Food Lion President Beth Newlands Campbell.
