Second Harvest, Food Lion helps families in need with ‘pop-up produce market’

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Hundreds of local families received fresh produce Thursday thanks to a partnership with America’s Second Harvest and Food Lion.

The organizations held a pop-up fresh produce market for low-income families at Second Harvest’s location on East President Street. About 200 households got to choose which fresh produce they’d like to take home.

Emma Inman with Food Lion says they know how important it is for people to get their hands on healthy foods.

“At Food Lion, we believe that no one should have to choose between gas and groceries, or dinner and rent. We have been a long time partner with Second Harvest helping them to fulfill their mission of making sure that our neighbors here do not go hungry," Inman said.

Food Lion has been partnering with America’s Second Harvest for over 20 years.
