Food Lion issues March-Madness style challenge to Mountaineer Food Bank

West Virginia

If basketball brackets are not your thing then perhaps you might try picking your favorite food bank.

Food Lion is holding it’s own March Madness bracket, asking people to vote for their favorite local food banks.

As one of the 16 finalists, the Mountaineer Food Bank will be matched head to head until only one remains.

Food Lion will make a donation to each food bank based on how well they do.

Staff said both the attention to the hunger issue and the funding for hundreds of meals are both important.

“I think the ultimate goal is to make sure that we’re getting food that we’re getting back out into the community to the food-insecure residents of the state and to make an impact there.”

Mountaineer Food Bank is up for voting through Friday at 1 p.m.
