Operation Homefront to provide meal to local military families

Food Lion to present $20,000 donation to Operation Homefront

From staff reports

The national nonprofit Operation Homefront and Food Lion will distribute gift cards and dry goods to 100 pre-registered military families from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, March 25 at Praise Assembly on Parris Island Gateway in Beaufort.

Food Lion will also provide bags full of fresh fruits and vegetables.

In honor of Operation Homefront’s 20th anniversary, Food Lion will be presenting a $20,000 donation to help further the organization’s mission to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive —not simply struggle to get by — in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect.

Since 2010, Operation Homefront has provided more than 145,000 meals to military and veteran families through its Holiday Meals for Military program. The program offers junior- and mid-grade enlisted families, who are often far from loved ones, with all the grocery items necessary to prepare a traditional family meal, helping to ease a widely felt financial burden and brighten the lives of those who sacrifice so much on behalf of all Americans.

As the health and safety of military families, volunteers, and staff are highest priority, this program will be delivered in a drive-through format and will be conducted within local, federal, and CDC guidelines.
