WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The Good Shepherd Center received a $2,000 donation from Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help feed people who are food insecure during the holiday season.
According to Good Shepherd Executive Director Katrina Knight, the gift will be used to help the hungry to access healthy foods including fresh fruits and vegetables.
“Food Lion and the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation have been a steadfast partner over the years and their generous support has allowed us to feed hundreds of our hungry neighbors in crisis,” said Knight.
Shelter guests have access to three hot meals daily. Once a week, community members can pick up bags of food at a drive-through outside Good Shepherd’s soup kitchen at 811 Martin Street in Wilmington, Wednesdays, noon-1 p.m.
