League mascots to participate in Food Lion/Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C. food drive.

GREENSBORO, NC – The Atlantic Coast Conference mascots will visit Food Lion, located at 3935 Brian Jordan Place, on Friday, March 4 as part of an outreach initiative to eliminate hunger in the High Point community for the 2016 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament.

The mascots will be onsite at the store from 6:00 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. and then from noon until 1:00 p.m. to encourage Food Lion customers to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C. whose mission is to reduce hunger and malnutrition by acquiring and distributing food to supplement the food needs of faith and community-based organizations. The food bank advocates for the rights of hungry people, educates the public about hunger and pursues partnerships with organizations like Food Lion to alleviate hunger. Food Lion is partnering with the ACC through its Food Lion Feeds community initiative, which has a goal to provide 500 million meals by 2020 to hungry families.

Winston-Salem, N.C., news station WXII-TV Channel 12 will also be onsite performing live reports from the store throughout Friday morning.
