Food Lion offering 10% discount for military on Veterans Day

SALISBURY — In honor of Veterans Day today, Food Lion stores will offer a 10 percent discount to active, retired and honorably discharged military personnel to show their support and appreciation for those who are serving or have served in the United States Armed Forces. 

To receive the discount, active military, veterans and their families should present their MVP card, along with military identification, if available, at the time of checkout. Customers will then receive 10 percent off their entire grocery bill.

This offer is valid today only. The discount does not apply to the purchase of alcohol, tobacco, gift cards, lottery, postage stamps or services.

“I’m proud for the opportunity to show our gratitude for the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country every day,” said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. “We consider our military and veteran customers our neighbors, friends and in many cases, our family. It’s an honor to be able to show our thanks for the many sacrifices they have made for our country by providing this discount to military and their families.”

Also on Veterans Day, Food Lion will donate $300,000 to Hope For the Warriors in order to help feed those in need this holiday season.

A longstanding supporter of its military associates and customers, Food Lion provides a number of support services to military associates, as well as adopts families of colleagues who have been called into active duty and helps to feed veterans in need through its Food Lion Feeds hunger-relief platform.

In 2010, due to the grocer’s military support, Food Lion received the Department of Defense’s highest honor for employers, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) Freedom Award, for its programs and services for military associates.
